After-tax HSA Contribution
I have an HSA and my employer contributes $1000 over the course of the year to it. I also elected to have an additional $2000 taken via payroll deduction (pre-tax). This resulted in my w2 from my employer showing $3000 contributed to my HSA. Here is where I'm confused. I also chose to deposit $3000 of after-tax money to my HSA making my total contribution $6000 ( note this is just beneath the $6050 limit for families in 2012). Because these were after-tax dollars shouldn't I have to key it somewhere to reduce my total taxable income? Turbo tax asks only asks me for contributions made from my employer (reported on my w2) when I attempt to add the remaining $3000 in after tax dollars to the other fields it decreases my refund - What should I do?
