Irs 1040x form You must be an eligible individual to qualify for an HSA. Irs 1040x form No permission or authorization from the IRS is necessary to establish an HSA. Irs 1040x form You set up an HSA with a trustee. Irs 1040x form A qualified HSA trustee can be a bank, an insurance company, or anyone already approved by the IRS to be a trustee of individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) or Archer MSAs. Irs 1040x form The HSA can be established through a trustee that is different from your health plan provider. Irs 1040x form Your employer may already have some information on HSA trustees in your area. Irs 1040x form If you have an Archer MSA, you can generally roll it over into an HSA tax free. Irs 1040x form See Rollovers, later. Irs 1040x form What are the benefits of an HSA?   You may enjoy several benefits from having an HSA. Irs 1040x form You can claim a tax deduction for contributions you, or someone other than your employer, make to your HSA even if you do not itemize your deductions on Form 1040. Irs 1040x form Contributions to your HSA made by your employer (including contributions made through a cafeteria plan) may be excluded from your gross income. Irs 1040x form The contributions remain in your account until you use them. Irs 1040x form The interest or other earnings on the assets in the account are tax free. Irs 1040x form Distributions may be tax free if you pay qualified medical expenses. Irs 1040x form See Qualified medical expenses , later. Irs 1040x form An HSA is “portable. Irs 1040x form ” It stays with you if you change employers or leave the work force. Irs 1040x form Qualifying for an HSA To be an eligible individual and qualify for an HSA, you must meet the following requirements. Irs 1040x form You must be covered under a high deductible health plan (HDHP), described later, on the first day of the month. Irs 1040x form You have no other health coverage except what is permitted under Other health coverage , later. Irs 1040x form You are not enrolled in Medicare. Irs 1040x form You cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 tax return. Irs 1040x form Under the last-month rule, you are considered to be an eligible individual for the entire year if you are an eligible individual on the first day of the last month of your tax year (December 1 for most taxpayers). Irs 1040x form If you meet these requirements, you are an eligible individual even if your spouse has non-HDHP family coverage, provided your spouse's coverage does not cover you. Irs 1040x form If another taxpayer is entitled to claim an exemption for you, you cannot claim a deduction for an HSA contribution. Irs 1040x form This is true even if the other person does not actually claim your exemption. Irs 1040x form Each spouse who is an eligible individual who wants an HSA must open a separate HSA. Irs 1040x form You cannot have a joint HSA. Irs 1040x form High deductible health plan (HDHP). Irs 1040x form   An HDHP has: A higher annual deductible than typical health plans, and A maximum limit on the sum of the annual deductible and out-of-pocket medical expenses that you must pay for covered expenses. Irs 1040x form Out-of-pocket expenses include copayments and other amounts, but do not include premiums. Irs 1040x form   An HDHP may provide preventive care benefits without a deductible or with a deductible less than the minimum annual deductible. Irs 1040x form Preventive care includes, but is not limited to, the following. Irs 1040x form Periodic health evaluations, including tests and diagnostic procedures ordered in connection with routine examinations, such as annual physicals. Irs 1040x form Routine prenatal and well-child care. Irs 1040x form Child and adult immunizations. Irs 1040x form Tobacco cessation programs. Irs 1040x form Obesity weight-loss programs. Irs 1040x form Screening services. Irs 1040x form This includes screening services for the following: Cancer. Irs 1040x form Heart and vascular diseases. Irs 1040x form Infectious diseases. Irs 1040x form Mental health conditions. Irs 1040x form Substance abuse. Irs 1040x form Metabolic, nutritional, and endocrine conditions. Irs 1040x form Musculoskeletal disorders. Irs 1040x form Obstetric and gynecological conditions. Irs 1040x form Pediatric conditions. Irs 1040x form Vision and hearing disorders.

Irs 1040x form gov/irb/2004-15_IRB/ar10. Irs 1040x form html. Irs 1040x form     The following table shows the minimum annual deductible and maximum annual deductible and other out-of-pocket expenses for HDHPs for 2013. Irs 1040x form      Self-only coverage Family coverage Minimum annual deductible $1,250 $2,500 Maximum annual deductible and other out-of-pocket expenses* $6,250 $12,500 * This limit does not apply to deductibles and expenses for out-of-network services if the plan uses a network of providers. Irs 1040x form Instead, only deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses for services within the network should be used to figure whether the limit applies. Irs 1040x form    The following table shows the minimum annual deductible and maximum annual deductible and other out-of-pocket expenses for HDHPs for 2014. Irs 1040x form      Self-only coverage Family coverage Minimum annual deductible $1,250 $2,500 Maximum annual deductible and other out-of-pocket expenses* $6,350 $12,700 * This limit does not apply to deductibles and expenses for out-of-network services if the plan uses a network of providers. Irs 1040x form Instead, only deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses for services within the network should be used to figure whether the limit applies. Irs 1040x form   Self-only HDHP coverage is an HDHP covering only an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form Family HDHP coverage is an HDHP covering an eligible individual and at least one other individual (whether or not that individual is an eligible individual). Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form An eligible individual and his dependent child are covered under an “employee plus one” HDHP offered by the individual's employer. Irs 1040x form This is family HDHP coverage. Irs 1040x form Family plans that do not meet the high deductible rules. Irs 1040x form   There are some family plans that have deductibles for both the family as a whole and for individual family members. Irs 1040x form Under these plans, if you meet the individual deductible for one family member, you do not have to meet the higher annual deductible amount for the family. Irs 1040x form If either the deductible for the family as a whole or the deductible for an individual family member is less than the minimum annual deductible for family coverage, the plan does not qualify as an HDHP. Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form You have family health insurance coverage in 2013. Irs 1040x form The annual deductible for the family plan is $3,500. Irs 1040x form This plan also has an individual deductible of $1,500 for each family member. Irs 1040x form The plan does not qualify as an HDHP because the deductible for an individual family member is less than the minimum annual deductible ($2,500) for family coverage. Irs 1040x form Other health coverage. Irs 1040x form   You (and your spouse, if you have family coverage) generally cannot have any other health coverage that is not an HDHP. Irs 1040x form However, you can still be an eligible individual even if your spouse has non-HDHP coverage provided you are not covered by that plan. Irs 1040x form    You can have additional insurance that provides benefits only for the following items. Irs 1040x form Liabilities incurred under workers' compensation laws, tort liabilities, or liabilities related to ownership or use of property. Irs 1040x form A specific disease or illness. Irs 1040x form A fixed amount per day (or other period) of hospitalization. Irs 1040x form   You can also have coverage (whether provided through insurance or otherwise) for the following items. Irs 1040x form Accidents. Irs 1040x form Disability. Irs 1040x form Dental care. Irs 1040x form Vision care. Irs 1040x form Long-term care. Irs 1040x form    Plans in which substantially all of the coverage is through the items listed earlier are not HDHPs. Irs 1040x form For example, if your plan provides coverage substantially all of which is for a specific disease or illness, the plan is not an HDHP for purposes of establishing an HSA. Irs 1040x form Prescription drug plans. Irs 1040x form   You can have a prescription drug plan, either as part of your HDHP or a separate plan (or rider), and qualify as an eligible individual if the plan does not provide benefits until the minimum annual deductible of the HDHP has been met. Irs 1040x form If you can receive benefits before that deductible is met, you are not an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form Other employee health plans. Irs 1040x form   An employee covered by an HDHP and a health FSA or an HRA that pays or reimburses qualified medical expenses generally cannot make contributions to an HSA. Irs 1040x form Health FSAs and HRAs are discussed later. Irs 1040x form   However, an employee can make contributions to an HSA while covered under an HDHP and one or more of the following arrangements. Irs 1040x form Limited-purpose health FSA or HRA. Irs 1040x form These arrangements can pay or reimburse the items listed earlier under Other health coverage except long-term care. Irs 1040x form Also, these arrangements can pay or reimburse preventive care expenses because they can be paid without having to satisfy the deductible. Irs 1040x form Suspended HRA. Irs 1040x form Before the beginning of an HRA coverage period, you can elect to suspend the HRA. Irs 1040x form The HRA does not pay or reimburse, at any time, the medical expenses incurred during the suspension period except preventive care and items listed under Other health coverage. Irs 1040x form When the suspension period ends, you are no longer eligible to make contributions to an HSA. Irs 1040x form Post-deductible health FSA or HRA. Irs 1040x form These arrangements do not pay or reimburse any medical expenses incurred before the minimum annual deductible amount is met. Irs 1040x form The deductible for these arrangements does not have to be the same as the deductible for the HDHP, but benefits may not be provided before the minimum annual deductible amount is met. Irs 1040x form Retirement HRA. Irs 1040x form This arrangement pays or reimburses only those medical expenses incurred after retirement. Irs 1040x form After retirement you are no longer eligible to make contributions to an HSA. Irs 1040x form Health FSA – grace period. Irs 1040x form   Coverage during a grace period by a general purpose health FSA is allowed if the balance in the health FSA at the end of its prior year plan is zero. Irs 1040x form See Flexible Spending Arrangements (FSAs) , later. Irs 1040x form Contributions to an HSA Any eligible individual can contribute to an HSA. Irs 1040x form For an employee's HSA, the employee, the employee's employer, or both may contribute to the employee's HSA in the same year. Irs 1040x form For an HSA established by a self-employed (or unemployed) individual, the individual can contribute. Irs 1040x form Family members or any other person may also make contributions on behalf of an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form Contributions to an HSA must be made in cash. Irs 1040x form Contributions of stock or property are not allowed. Irs 1040x form Limit on Contributions The amount you or any other person can contribute to your HSA depends on the type of HDHP coverage you have, your age, the date you become an eligible individual, and the date you cease to be an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form For 2013, if you have self-only HDHP coverage, you can contribute up to $3,250. Irs 1040x form If you have family HDHP coverage, you can contribute up to $6,450. Irs 1040x form For 2014, if you have self-only HDHP coverage, you can contribute up to $3,300. Irs 1040x form If you have family HDHP coverage you can contribute up to $6,550. Irs 1040x form If you were, or were considered (under the last-month rule, discussed later), an eligible individual for the entire year and did not change your type of coverage, you can contribute the full amount based on your type of coverage. Irs 1040x form However, if you were not an eligible individual for the entire year or changed your coverage during the year, your contribution limit is the greater of: The limitation shown on the Line 3 Limitation Chart and Worksheetin the Instructions for Form 8889, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), or The maximum annual HSA contribution based on your HDHP coverage (self-only or family) on the first day of the last month of your tax year. Irs 1040x form If you had family HDHP coverage on the first day of the last month of your tax year, your contribution limit for 2013 is $6,450 even if you changed coverage during the year. Irs 1040x form Last-month rule. Irs 1040x form   Under the last-month rule, if you are an eligible individual on the first day of the last month of your tax year (December 1 for most taxpayers), you are considered an eligible individual for the entire year. Irs 1040x form You are treated as having the same HDHP coverage for the entire year as you had on the first day of the last month. Irs 1040x form Testing period. Irs 1040x form   If contributions were made to your HSA based on you being an eligible individual for the entire year under the last-month rule, you must remain an eligible individual during the testing period. Irs 1040x form For the last-month rule, the testing period begins with the last month of your tax year and ends on the last day of the 12th month following that month. Irs 1040x form For example, December 1, 2013, through December 31, 2014. Irs 1040x form   If you fail to remain an eligible individual during the testing period, other than because of death or becoming disabled, you will have to include in income the total contributions made to your HSA that would not have been made except for the last-month rule. Irs 1040x form You include this amount in your income in the year in which you fail to be an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form This amount is also subject to a 10% additional tax. Irs 1040x form The income and additional tax are shown on Form 8889, Part III. Irs 1040x form Example 1. Irs 1040x form Chris, age 53, becomes an eligible individual on December 1, 2013. Irs 1040x form He has family HDHP coverage on that date. Irs 1040x form Under the last-month rule, he contributes $6,450 to his HSA. Irs 1040x form Chris fails to be an eligible individual in June 2014. Irs 1040x form Because Chris did not remain an eligible individual during the testing period (December 1, 2013, through December 31, 2014), he must include in his 2014 income the contributions made in 2013 that would not have been made except for the last-month rule. Irs 1040x form Chris uses the worksheet in the Form 8889 instructions to determine this amount. Irs 1040x form January -0- February -0- March -0- April -0- May -0- June -0- July -0- August -0- September -0- October -0- November -0- December $6,450. Irs 1040x form 00 Total for all months $6,450. Irs 1040x form 00 Limitation. Irs 1040x form Divide the total by 12 $537. Irs 1040x form 50 Chris would include $5,912. Irs 1040x form 50 ($6,450. Irs 1040x form 00 – $537. Irs 1040x form 50) in his gross income on his 2014 tax return. Irs 1040x form Also, a 10% additional tax applies to this amount. Irs 1040x form Example 2. Irs 1040x form Erika, age 39, has self-only HDHP coverage on January 1, 2013. Irs 1040x form Erika changes to family HDHP coverage on November 1, 2013. Irs 1040x form Because Erika has family HDHP coverage on December 1, 2013, she contributes $6,450 for 2013. Irs 1040x form Erika fails to be an eligible individual in March 2014. Irs 1040x form Because she did not remain an eligible individual during the testing period (December 1, 2013, through December 31, 2014), she must include in income the contribution made that would not have been made except for the last-month rule. Irs 1040x form Erika uses the worksheet in the Form 8889 instructions to determine this amount. Irs 1040x form January $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 February $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 March $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 April $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 May $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 June $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 July $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 August $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 September $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 October $3,250. Irs 1040x form 00 November $6,450. Irs 1040x form 00 December $6,450. Irs 1040x form 00 Total for all months $45,400. Irs 1040x form 00 Limitation. Irs 1040x form Divide the total by 12 $3,783. Irs 1040x form 34 Erika would include $2,666. Irs 1040x form 67 ($6,450 – $3,783. Irs 1040x form 34) in her gross income on her 2014 tax return. Irs 1040x form Also, a 10% additional tax applies to this amount. Irs 1040x form Additional contribution. Irs 1040x form   If you are an eligible individual who is age 55 or older at the end of your tax year, your contribution limit is increased by $1,000. Irs 1040x form For example, if you have self-only coverage, you can contribute up to $4,250 (the contribution limit for self-only coverage ($3,250) plus the additional contribution of $1,000). Irs 1040x form However, see Enrolled in Medicare , later. Irs 1040x form If you have more than one HSA in 2013, your total contributions to all the HSAs cannot be more than the limits discussed earlier. Irs 1040x form Reduction of contribution limit. Irs 1040x form   You must reduce the amount that can be contributed (including any additional contribution) to your HSA by the amount of any contribution made to your Archer MSA (including employer contributions) for the year. Irs 1040x form A special rule applies to married people, discussed next, if each spouse has family coverage under an HDHP. Irs 1040x form Rules for married people. Irs 1040x form   If either spouse has family HDHP coverage, both spouses are treated as having family HDHP coverage. Irs 1040x form If each spouse has family coverage under a separate plan, the contribution limit for 2013 is $6,450. Irs 1040x form You must reduce the limit on contributions, before taking into account any additional contributions, by the amount contributed to both spouses' Archer MSAs. Irs 1040x form After that reduction, the contribution limit is split equally between the spouses unless you agree on a different division. Irs 1040x form The rules for married people apply only if both spouses are eligible individuals. Irs 1040x form If both spouses are 55 or older and not enrolled in Medicare, each spouse's contribution limit is increased by the additional contribution. Irs 1040x form If both spouses meet the age requirement, the total contributions under family coverage cannot be more than $8,450. Irs 1040x form Each spouse must make the additional contribution to his or her own HSA. Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form For 2013, Mr. Irs 1040x form Auburn and his wife are both eligible individuals. Irs 1040x form They each have family coverage under separate HDHPs. Irs 1040x form Mr. Irs 1040x form Auburn is 58 years old and Mrs. Irs 1040x form Auburn is 53. Irs 1040x form Mr. Irs 1040x form and Mrs. Irs 1040x form Auburn can split the family contribution limit ($6,450) equally or they can agree on a different division. Irs 1040x form If they split it equally, Mr. Irs 1040x form Auburn can contribute $4,225 to an HSA (one-half the maximum contribution for family coverage ($3,225) + $1,000 additional contribution) and Mrs. Irs 1040x form Auburn can contribute $3,225 to an HSA. Irs 1040x form Employer contributions. Irs 1040x form   You must reduce the amount you, or any other person, can contribute to your HSA by the amount of any contributions made by your employer that are excludable from your income. Irs 1040x form This includes amounts contributed to your account by your employer through a cafeteria plan. Irs 1040x form Enrolled in Medicare. Irs 1040x form   Beginning with the first month you are enrolled in Medicare, your contribution limit is zero. Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form You turned age 65 in July 2013 and enrolled in Medicare. Irs 1040x form You had an HDHP with self-only coverage and are eligible for an additional contribution of $1,000. Irs 1040x form Your contribution limit is $2,125 ($4,250 × 6 ÷ 12). Irs 1040x form Qualified HSA funding distribution. Irs 1040x form   A qualified HSA funding distribution may be made from your traditional IRA or Roth IRA to your HSA. Irs 1040x form This distribution cannot be made from an ongoing SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA. Irs 1040x form For this purpose, a SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA is ongoing if an employer contribution is made for the plan year ending with or within your tax year in which the distribution would be made. Irs 1040x form   The maximum qualified HSA funding distribution depends on the HDHP coverage (self-only or family) you have on the first day of the month in which the contribution is made and your age as of the end of the tax year. Irs 1040x form The distribution must be made directly by the trustee of the IRA to the trustee of the HSA. Irs 1040x form The distribution is not included in your income, is not deductible, and reduces the amount that can be contributed to your HSA. Irs 1040x form The qualified HSA funding distribution is shown on Form 8889 for the year in which the distribution is made. Irs 1040x form   You can make only one qualified HSA funding distribution during your lifetime. Irs 1040x form However, if you make a distribution during a month when you have self-only HDHP coverage, you can make another qualified HSA funding distribution in a later month in that tax year if you change to family HDHP coverage. Irs 1040x form The total qualified HSA funding distribution cannot be more than the contribution limit for family HDHP coverage plus any additional contribution to which you are entitled. Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form In 2013, you are an eligible individual, age 57, with self-only HDHP coverage. Irs 1040x form You can make a qualified HSA funding distribution of $4,250 ($3,250 plus $1,000 additional contribution). Irs 1040x form Funding distribution – testing period. Irs 1040x form   You must remain an eligible individual during the testing period. Irs 1040x form For a qualified HSA funding distribution, the testing period begins with the month in which the qualified HSA funding distribution is contributed and ends on the last day of the 12th month following that month. Irs 1040x form For example, if a qualified HSA funding distribution is contributed to your HSA on August 10, 2013, your testing period begins in August 2013, and ends on August 31, 2014. Irs 1040x form   If you fail to remain an eligible individual during the testing period, other than because of death or becoming disabled, you will have to include in income the qualified HSA funding distribution. Irs 1040x form You include this amount in income in the year in which you fail to be an eligible individual. Irs 1040x form This amount is also subject to a 10% additional tax. Irs 1040x form The income and the additional tax are shown on Form 8889, Part III. Irs 1040x form   Each qualified HSA funding distribution allowed has its own testing period. Irs 1040x form For example, you are an eligible individual, age 45, with self-only HDHP coverage. Irs 1040x form On June 18, 2013, you make a qualified HSA funding distribution of $3,250. Irs 1040x form On July 27, 2013, you enroll in family HDHP coverage and on August 17, 2013, you make a qualified HSA funding distribution of $3,200. Irs 1040x form Your testing period for the first distribution begins in June 2013 and ends on June 30, 2014. Irs 1040x form Your testing period for the second distribution begins in August 2013 and ends on August 31, 2014. Irs 1040x form   The testing period rule that applies under the last-month rule (discussed earlier) does not apply to amounts contributed to an HSA through a qualified HSA funding distribution. Irs 1040x form If you remain an eligible individual during the entire funding distribution testing period, then no amount of that distribution is included in income and will not be subject to the additional tax for failing to meet the last-month rule testing period. Irs 1040x form Rollovers A rollover contribution is not included in your income, is not deductible, and does not reduce your contribution limit. Irs 1040x form Archer MSAs and other HSAs.

Irs 1040x form See Qualified medical expenses , later. Irs 1040x form The contributions remain in your Archer MSA from year to year until you use them. Irs 1040x form An Archer MSA is “portable” so it stays with you if you change employers or leave the work force. Irs 1040x form Qualifying for an Archer MSA To qualify for an Archer MSA, you must be either of the following. Irs 1040x form An employee (or the spouse of an employee) of a small employer (defined later) that maintains a self-only or family HDHP for you (or your spouse).

Irs 1040x form Changing employers. Irs 1040x form   If you change employers, your Archer MSA moves with you. Irs 1040x form However, you may not make additional contributions unless you are otherwise eligible. Irs 1040x form High deductible health plan (HDHP). Irs 1040x form   To be eligible for an Archer MSA, you must be covered under an HDHP. Irs 1040x form An HDHP has: A higher annual deductible than typical health plans, and A maximum limit on the annual out-of-pocket medical expenses that you must pay for covered expenses. Irs 1040x form Limits. Irs 1040x form   The following table shows the limits for annual deductibles and the maximum out-of-pocket expenses for HDHPs for 2013. Irs 1040x form   Self-only coverage Family coverage Minimum annual deductible $2,150 $4,300 Maximum annual deductible $3,200 $6,450 Maximum annual out-of-pocket expenses $4,300 $7,850 Family plans that do not meet the high deductible rules. Irs 1040x form   There are some family plans that have deductibles for both the family as a whole and for individual family members. Irs 1040x form Under these plans, if you meet the individual deductible for one family member, you do not have to meet the higher annual deductible amount for the family. Irs 1040x form If either the deductible for the family as a whole or the deductible for an individual family member is less than the minimum annual deductible for family coverage, the plan does not qualify as an HDHP. Irs 1040x form Example. Irs 1040x form You have family health insurance coverage in 2013. Irs 1040x form The annual deductible for the family plan is $5,500. Irs 1040x form This plan also has an individual deductible of $2,000 for each family member. Irs 1040x form The plan does not qualify as an HDHP because the deductible for an individual family member is less than the minimum annual deductible ($4,300) for family coverage. Irs 1040x form Other health coverage. Irs 1040x form   You (and your spouse, if you have family coverage) generally cannot have any other health coverage that is not an HDHP. Irs 1040x form However, you can still be an eligible individual even if your spouse has non-HDHP coverage provided you are not covered by that plan. Irs 1040x form However, you can have additional insurance that provides benefits only for the following items. Irs 1040x form Liabilities incurred under workers' compensation laws, torts, or ownership or use of property. Irs 1040x form A specific disease or illness. Irs 1040x form A fixed amount per day (or other period) of hospitalization. Irs 1040x form You can also have coverage (whether provided through insurance or otherwise) for the following items.

Irs 1040x form Contributions to an MSA Contributions to an Archer MSA must be made in cash. Irs 1040x form You cannot contribute stock or other property to an Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form Who can contribute to my Archer MSA?   If you are an employee, your employer may make contributions to your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form (You do not pay tax on these contributions. Irs 1040x form ) If your employer does not make contributions to your Archer MSA, or you are self-employed, you can make your own contributions to your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form Both you and your employer cannot make contributions to your Archer MSA in the same year. Irs 1040x form You do not have to make contributions to your Archer MSA every year. Irs 1040x form    If your spouse is covered by your HDHP and an excludable amount is contributed by your spouse's employer to an Archer MSA belonging to your spouse, you cannot make contributions to your own Archer MSA that year. Irs 1040x form Limits There are two limits on the amount you or your employer can contribute to your Archer MSA: The annual deductible limit. Irs 1040x form An income limit. Irs 1040x form Annual deductible limit. Irs 1040x form   You (or your employer) can contribute up to 75% of the annual deductible of your HDHP (65% if you have a self-only plan) to your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form You must have the HDHP all year to contribute the full amount. Irs 1040x form If you do not qualify to contribute the full amount for the year, determine your annual deductible limit by using the worksheet in the Instructions for Form 8853, Archer MSAs and Long-Term Care Insurance Contracts. Irs 1040x form Example 1. Irs 1040x form You have an HDHP for your family all year in 2013. Irs 1040x form The annual deductible is $5,000. Irs 1040x form You can contribute up to $3,750 ($5,000 × 75%) to your Archer MSA for the year. Irs 1040x form Example 2. Irs 1040x form You have an HDHP for your family for the entire months of July through December 2013 (6 months). Irs 1040x form The annual deductible is $5,000. Irs 1040x form You can contribute up to $1,875 ($5,000 × 75% ÷ 12 × 6) to your Archer MSA for the year. Irs 1040x form If you and your spouse each have a family plan, you are treated as having family coverage with the lower annual deductible of the two health plans. Irs 1040x form The contribution limit is split equally between you unless you agree on a different division. Irs 1040x form Income limit. Irs 1040x form   You cannot contribute more than you earned for the year from the employer through whom you have your HDHP. Irs 1040x form   If you are self-employed, you cannot contribute more than your net self-employment income. Irs 1040x form This is your income from self-employment minus expenses (including the deductible part of self-employment tax). Irs 1040x form Example 1. Irs 1040x form Noah Paul earned $25,000 from ABC Company in 2013. Irs 1040x form Through ABC, he had an HDHP for his family for the entire year. Irs 1040x form The annual deductible was $5,000. Irs 1040x form He can contribute up to $3,750 to his Archer MSA (75% × $5,000). Irs 1040x form He can contribute the full amount because he earned more than $3,750 at ABC. Irs 1040x form Example 2. Irs 1040x form Westley Lawrence is self-employed. Irs 1040x form He had an HDHP for his family for the entire year in 2013. Irs 1040x form The annual deductible was $5,000. Irs 1040x form Based on the annual deductible, the maximum contribution to his Archer MSA would have been $3,750 (75% × $5,000). Irs 1040x form However, after deducting his business expenses, Joe's net self-employment income is $2,500 for the year. Irs 1040x form Therefore, he is limited to a contribution of $2,500. Irs 1040x form Individuals enrolled in Medicare. Irs 1040x form   Beginning with the first month you are enrolled in Medicare, you cannot contribute to an Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form However, you may be eligible for a Medicare Advantage MSA, discussed later.

Irs 1040x form Excess contributions. Irs 1040x form   You will have excess contributions if the contributions to your Archer MSA for the year are greater than the limits discussed earlier. Irs 1040x form Excess contributions are not deductible. Irs 1040x form Excess contributions made by your employer are included in your gross income. Irs 1040x form If the excess contribution is not included in box 1 of Form W-2, you must report the excess as “Other income” on your tax return. Irs 1040x form   Generally, you must pay a 6% excise tax on excess contributions. Irs 1040x form See Form 5329, Additional Taxes on Qualified Plans (Including IRAs) and Other Tax-Favored Accounts, to figure the excise tax. Irs 1040x form The excise tax applies to each tax year the excess contribution remains in the account.

Irs 1040x form Distributions From an MSA You will generally pay medical expenses during the year without being reimbursed by your HDHP until you reach the annual deductible for the plan. Irs 1040x form When you pay medical expenses during the year that are not reimbursed by your HDHP, you can ask the trustee of your Archer MSA to send you a distribution from your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form You can receive tax-free distributions from your Archer MSA to pay for qualified medical expenses (discussed later). Irs 1040x form If you receive distributions for other reasons, the amount will be subject to income tax and may be subject to an additional 20% tax as well. Irs 1040x form You do not have to make withdrawals from your Archer MSA each year. Irs 1040x form If you no longer qualify to make contributions, you can still receive tax-free distributions to pay or reimburse your qualified medical expenses. Irs 1040x form A distribution is money you get from your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form The trustee will report any distribution to you and the IRS on Form 1099-SA, Distributions From an HSA, Archer MSA, or Medicare Advantage MSA. Irs 1040x form Qualified medical expenses. Irs 1040x form   Qualified medical expenses are those expenses that would generally qualify for the medical and dental expenses deduction. Irs 1040x form These are explained in Publication 502. Irs 1040x form   Also, non-prescription medicines (other than insulin) are not considered qualified medical expenses for MSA purposes. Irs 1040x form A medicine or drug will be a qualified medical expense for MSA purposes only if the medicine or drug: Requires a prescription, Is available without a prescription (an over-the-counter medicine or drug) and you get a prescription for it, or Is insulin. Irs 1040x form   Qualified medical expenses are those incurred by the following persons. Irs 1040x form You and your spouse. Irs 1040x form All dependents you claim on your tax return. Irs 1040x form Any person you could have claimed as a dependent on your return except that: The person filed a joint return, The person had gross income of $3,900 or more, or You, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 return. Irs 1040x form    For this purpose, a child of parents that are divorced, separated, or living apart for the last 6 months of the calendar year is treated as the dependent of both parents whether or not the custodial parent releases the claim to the child's exemption. Irs 1040x form    You cannot deduct qualified medical expenses as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040) that are equal to the tax-free distribution from your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form Special rules for insurance premiums. Irs 1040x form   Generally, you cannot treat insurance premiums as qualified medical expenses for Archer MSAs. Irs 1040x form You can, however, treat premiums for long-term care coverage, health care coverage while you receive unemployment benefits, or health care continuation coverage required under any federal law as qualified medical expenses for Archer MSAs. Irs 1040x form Health coverage tax credit. Irs 1040x form   You cannot claim this credit for premiums that you pay with a tax-free distribution from your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form See Publication 502 for information on this credit. Irs 1040x form Deemed distributions from Archer MSAs. Irs 1040x form   The following situations result in deemed taxable distributions from your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form You engaged in any transaction prohibited by section 4975 with respect to any of your Archer MSAs at any time in 2013. Irs 1040x form Your account ceases to be an Archer MSA as of January 1, 2013, and you must include the fair market value of all assets in the account as of January 1, 2013, on Form 8853. Irs 1040x form You used any portion of any of your Archer MSAs as security for a loan at any time in 2013. Irs 1040x form You must include the fair market value of the assets used as security for the loan as income on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs 1040x form   Examples of prohibited transactions include the direct or indirect: Sale, exchange, or leasing of property between you and the Archer MSA, Lending of money between you and the Archer MSA, Furnishing goods, services, or facilities between you and the Archer MSA, and Transfer to or use by you, or for your benefit, of any assets of the Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form   Any deemed distribution will not be treated as used to pay qualified medical expenses. Irs 1040x form These distributions are included in your income and are subject to the additional 20% tax, discussed later. Irs 1040x form Recordkeeping. Irs 1040x form You must keep records sufficient to show that: The distributions were exclusively to pay or reimburse qualified medical expenses, The qualified medical expenses had not been previously paid or reimbursed from another source, and The medical expenses had not been taken as an itemized deduction in any year. Irs 1040x form Do not send these records with your tax return. Irs 1040x form Keep them with your tax records. Irs 1040x form Reporting Distributions on Your Return How you report your distributions depends on whether or not you use the distribution for qualified medical expenses (defined earlier). Irs 1040x form If you use a distribution from your Archer MSA for qualified medical expenses, you do not pay tax on the distribution but you have to report the distribution on Form 8853. Irs 1040x form Follow the instructions for the form and file it with your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs 1040x form If you do not use a distribution from your Archer MSA for qualified medical expenses, you must pay tax on the distribution. Irs 1040x form Report the amount on Form 8853 and file it with your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs 1040x form You may have to pay an additional 20% tax, discussed later, on your taxable distribution. Irs 1040x form If an amount (other than a rollover) is contributed to your Archer MSA this year (by you or your employer), you also must report and pay tax on a distribution you receive from your Archer MSA this year that is used to pay medical expenses of someone who is not covered by an HDHP, or is also covered by another health plan that is not an HDHP, at the time the expenses are incurred. Irs 1040x form Rollovers. Irs 1040x form   Generally, any distribution from an Archer MSA that you roll over into another Archer MSA or an HSA is not taxable if you complete the rollover within 60 days. Irs 1040x form An Archer MSA and an HSA can only receive one rollover contribution during a 1-year period. Irs 1040x form See the Form 8853 instructions for more information. Irs 1040x form Additional tax. Irs 1040x form   There is a 20% additional tax on the part of your distributions not used for qualified medical expenses.

Irs 1040x form Exceptions. Irs 1040x form   There is no additional tax on distributions made after the date you are disabled, reach age 65, or die. Irs 1040x form Balance in an Archer MSA An Archer MSA is generally exempt from tax. Irs 1040x form You are permitted to take a distribution from your Archer MSA at any time; however, only those amounts used exclusively to pay for qualified medical expenses are tax free. Irs 1040x form Amounts that remain at the end of the year are generally carried over to the next year (see Excess contributions , earlier). Irs 1040x form Earnings on amounts in an Archer MSA are not included in your income while held in the Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form Death of the Archer MSA Holder You should choose a beneficiary when you set up your Archer MSA. Irs 1040x form What happens to that Archer MSA when you die depends on whom you designate as the beneficiary. Irs 1040x form Spouse is the designated beneficiary. Irs 1040x form   If your spouse is the designated beneficiary of your Archer MSA, it will be treated as your spouse's Archer MSA after your death. Irs 1040x form Spouse is not the designated beneficiary. Irs 1040x form   If your spouse is not the designated beneficiary of your Archer MSA: The account stops being an Archer MSA, and The fair market value of the Archer MSA becomes taxable to the beneficiary in the year in which you die. Irs 1040x form   If your estate is the beneficiary, the fair market value of the Archer MSA will be included on your final income tax return. Irs 1040x form The amount taxable to a beneficiary other than the estate is reduced by any qualified medical expenses for the decedent that are paid by the beneficiary within 1 year after the date of death. Irs 1040x form Filing Form 8853 You must file Form 8853 with your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR if you (or your spouse, if married filing a joint return) had any activity in your Archer MSA during the year.

Irs 1040x form If, during the tax year, you are the beneficiary of two or more Archer MSAs or you are a beneficiary of an Archer MSA and you have your own Archer MSA, you must complete a separate Form 8853 for each MSA. Irs 1040x form Enter “statement” at the top of each Form 8853 and complete the form as instructed. Irs 1040x form Next, complete a controlling Form 8853 combining the amounts shown on each of the statement Forms 8853. Irs 1040x form Attach the statements to your tax return after the controlling Form 8853. Irs 1040x form Employer Participation This section contains the rules that employers must follow if they decide to make Archer MSAs available to their employees.

Irs 1040x form The employer may also contribute. Irs 1040x form Note. Irs 1040x form Unlike HSAs or Archer MSAs which must be reported on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, there are no reporting requirements for FSAs on your income tax return.

Irs 1040x form Employers have complete flexibility to offer various combinations of benefits in designing their plan. Irs 1040x form You do not have to be covered under any other health care plan to participate. Irs 1040x form Self-employed persons are not eligible for an FSA.

Irs 1040x form This is sometimes called a salary reduction agreement. Irs 1040x form The employer may also contribute to your FSA if specified in the plan. Irs 1040x form You do not pay federal income tax or employment taxes on the salary you contribute or the amounts your employer contributes to the FSA.
