First, may I assume that you had HSA contributions through your employer (i.e., code W in box 12 on your W-2)?

 

Second, did you allocate that amount to Yonkers or NYC or both?

 

Third, can you see the Other Inc Wks (Other Income worksheet) and the Inc Alloc Wks (Income Allocation worksheet)? What numbers are there referring to Other Income (line 15)?

 

To see these worksheets, you need either to be using the CD/download product or have already paid for the Online product.

Hi, I am getting this error as well. On the worksheet, in Column A (Federal), the HSA contributions are being pulled in to line 15, but they are not being included in the sum in Line 16. 

 

How can I get the total in Line 16 to update? It should just be a simple sum, but I have no way of modifying it from my end. I have gone through everything multiple times and restarted my taxes from scratch to try to remedy this issue with no luck. Is it possible this is a system error? 

 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

@alexandra11

 

Are HSA contributions showing up as an income item on your federal return? Probably on line 8 of Schedule 1 (1040)? HSA contributions are not normally income items unless you had excess contributions.

 

Alternatively, if you had HSA contributions on your W-2 (in box 12 with a code of 12) but had not gone through the HSA interview yet in order to show that you had HDHP coverage, then the code W amount will appear on form IT-360.1 as income (even though it won't be income when you properly complete your return).

 

So let's figure out why your HSA contributions are income first, then we can work on New York.

Hi Bill, thanks so much for the reply! 

 

My HSA contributions are not being counted as income on my federal return (and I did not contribute over the limit).  My HSA contributions are on my W-2 and I have gone through the HSA interview already and confirmed my HDHP coverage. 

 

Are there any other reasons my HSA contributions could be incorrectly coming through as income? I am not sure if this helps but I attached one of the sections of my NY state return that I found peculiar, and perhaps is related to the issue. I'm not sure why there is a "taxable HSA distribution"... and also I did not have any HSA distributions during 2020 (which I confirmed during my interview for federal) -- I only had contributions to my HSA. Thanks for any help you can provide!!

@alexandra11

 

A taxable HSA distribution is, as you know, when you enter a 1099-SA and indicate that some or all of it was NOT for qualified medical expenses.

 

Can you see your 8889? If so, what are the numbers on lines 14-17 in Part II on the 8889?

Lines 14-17 on my 8889 are all blank.

@alexandra11

 

I am mystified as to what that NY line is referring to. I can reproduce the line your are seeing ("Taxable HSA Distribution") only by creating a taxable HSA distribution on the federal return. However, this should have created at least an entry on line 16 of the 8889, which you say isn't there.

 

So, if you are game, let's try this.

 

Delete all your HSA data on the federal return, re-add it, then run through the New York interview again. Perhaps at some point there was a taxable gain which snuck into New York, but now it's not on the federal return, but New York has not forgotten.

 

***HSA Reset***

 

1. make a copy of your W-2(s) (if you don't have the paper copies)

2. delete your W-2(s) (use the garbage can icon next to the W-2(s) on the Income screen)

 

*** Desktop***

 

3. go to View (at the top), choose Forms, and select the desired form. Note the Delete Form button at the bottom of the screen.

 

*** Online ***

 

3. go to Tax Tools (on the left), and navigate to Tools->Delete a form

 

4. delete form(s) 1099-SA (if one), 8889-T, and 8889-S (if one)

5. go back and re-add your W-2(s), preferably adding them manually

6. go back and redo the entire HSA interview.

 

After this, run through the New York interview, and see if that Taxable HSA Distribution is still there.

@alexandra11

 

I am looking at your IT-360.1 lines 1 through 16 and it appears to be correct.

 

Note that there is an entry for line 15 that says "HSA" and $396...then there is a total at the bottom of the line 15 entries that also reads $396. So if you add line 1, line 2, line 3, and just the total for line 15, you will get the number that you see on line 16. Do you see that?

 

As for the screenshot you gave above, notice that the HSA distribution (which is actually the New York percentage of the HSA employer contribution) is represented as a negative number since it reduces your income, which is true.

 

Do you see the same thing that I see?

Hi @BillM223 . Yes, those are the numbers for NY on my end as well. I agree that everything on the form itself looks correct. this is the error message

Thank you for the screenshot. I did not realize that we were talking about column A, not B.

 

Yes, this seems to be a problem. I tried overriding the total for column A, but then TurboTax told me that you could no longer e-file your New York return.

 

Let me discuss this internally and see what options we have.
