HSA Tax Savings Example

Health Savings Accounts Offer Substantial Tax Savings

Substantial tax savings can result from maximizing your contribution to your Health Savings Account.  The examples below do not include savings on state income taxes.  All but a very few of the states that have state income taxes allow deductions for HSA contributions.  More information can be found on our HSA state income tax page.

Health Savings Accounts offer generous deductions on Federal income tax for any deposits made to the account.  See the charts below, or use our HSA Tax Savings Calculator.
