HI All,

I have W2 Box 12 entry with code W(Employer HSA Contribution) of amount 3650. I can see I am paying tax on this amount. If I remove this my refund amount increase so that is my assumption for paying tax on this amount. Can any one clarify this field and whether it is taxable?

    Hi YashSonani,

    Health Savings Account contributions are typically nontaxable. However, it can depend on your specific situation. You will want to go to Deductions/Credits > Other Deductions/Credits > Health Savings Account (HSA) in your FreeTaxUSA account. Go through the screens here to enter information related to your HSA. Depending on the information entered here, part of your HSA contributions could be included in your taxable income.
