Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I contributed to an HSA through my employer. But my TurboTax HSA summary has $0 next to tax-free employer contribution and it's not editable. What's the problem?

The Tax-free employer contributions should reflect line 12 on my W-2, but it only has $0 and won't let me change it despite trashing and redoing my W2 info.

HSA contributions made through your employer will appear on your W-2 as Code W in Box 12. This will automatically transfer to the HSA summary. The employer amount on the summary is not editable.

 

You should be able to edit Box 12 on your W-2. Try clicking on the trash can to the right of Box 12 – Amount to delete the entire line. Then choose “W” from the drop down in Box 12 – Code and enter the amount of your HAS contribution in Box 12 – Amount.

 

Box 12 Code W

The HSA is handled in 3 parts in the TT program :

First the contribution:

Next the limitations screen to confirm you are eligible to make the contributions:

Until you complete the HSA portion of the TurboTax interview to establish your eligibility for an HSA contribution, TurboTax will treat the amount entered on the W-2 form as an excess HSA contribution.
