EE & ER HSA Contribution via payroll and outside payroll for CA state tax

My employer contributed $X towards HSA (reported in W-2) and I contributed $Y (outside paycheck) in 2017 towards 2016 tax year. $X+$Y = Allowed Limit & $X > $Y. For California tax return, TT does addition of $X and subtraction of $Y to taxable income, instead of addition of $X & $Y. Why?

EE & ER HSA Contribution via payroll and outside payroll for CA state tax

California adds back the employer contribution for your HSA and subtracts your additional contributions from the adjustments so that it also is an addition to income (reduces a subtraction). Both amounts get added back into the federal amounts -- one just shows as an addition to income and one is a reduction of a deduction.
