HSA Payroll Deduction for Employer

Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are becoming more popular. The HSA payroll deduction for employer can be handled in a number of ways.

One of the new and innovative medical insurance plans today is the Health Savings Account. These are call HSA accounts and sometimes cafeteria plans. The idea is that money is set aside in an account that can be used to meet unexpected medical expenses. In many case, the employer can deduct the funds for the employee and insure that they are transferred to the account manager.

Usually, post tax contributions are made directly to the HSA and do not involve a payroll deduction.

When a distribution is made from the fund, the taxpayer should receive a 1099-SS form detailing the amount of the distribution. This amount goes on line 14-A of the form 8889. There might also be unreimbursed medical expenses that are entered on lone 15. T...
