The program has a glitch in the carryover amount from the prior tax year ... when you fill in the current year info this should resolve itself ... and that section of the program will not be operational until the 18th or later so remember to complete all 3 HSA  sections if required ...


The HSA is handled in 3 sections of the TT program:

First the contribution:

https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/2898445-how-do-i-fill-out-the-box-12-information-from-my-w-2

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

Did you become eligible for Medicare during 2017?
