Don’t have an HSA?

Text

An HSA is like no other savings account. The money goes in on a pre-taxed basis through payroll contributions, grows income tax-free and comes out income tax-free when you use it for qualified medical expenses. Plus, you can carry over unused available funds from year to year and the account is yours to keep even if you change jobs, change health plans or retire.

TAX FORMS

There are three tax forms associated with an HSA: IRS Form 1099-SA, 5498-SA and IRS Form 8889.

  • IRS form 1099-SA shows the amount of money you spent from your HSA during the tax year. IRS Form 1099-SA is available at the end of January. It is posted to your account and mailed. Note, you will only receive the IRS form 1099-SA if you had distributions in 2020.
  • IRS form 5498-SA shows the amount of money deposited into your HSA for the tax year. IRS Form 5498-SA is available at the end of January. If you contribute in the new year for the previous tax year, you will also get another 5498-SA form in May.
  • IRS form 8889 is the only form you fill out and submit with your tax return. Please use the information in your 1099-SA form, available online, to fill out IRS tax form 8889. IRS Form 8889 can be downloaded from IRS.gov at any time.
  • You can get copies of your most recent tax forms by signing in to your account online and viewing the "Statements and Docs" section.
