    What tax advantages does my HSA have?

    • 100 percent tax-deductible contributions
    • Tax-deferred fund growth
    • Tax-free spending on eligible expenses
    • Rollover funds from year to year
  • I’m not sure what this means…

    • Tax-deductible: Contributions to your HSA can be deducted from your gross income
    • Tax-deferred: Your HSA funds grow without being subject to taxes until they are used for non-eligible medical expenses
    • Tax-free: Your HSA funds are not taxed as long as you use them for eligible expenses

    Federal or state or both?

    The federal government makes HSAs available, but states may also offer tax benefits for HSAs. Contact your state tax resource to find out if your HSA qualifies for state tax benefits.
