What is Form 8889?

Form 8889, Health Savings Account (HSA) is used to report HSA information, including contributions, distributions, and withdrawals.

If you have an HSA, TurboTax will automatically create Form 8889 if any of these occurred during the tax year:

  • Contributions were made to your HSA;
  • You received HSA distributions;
  • You had to include certain amounts in income because you failed to be an eligible individual during the testing period; or
  • You acquired an interest in an HSA because of the death of the account beneficiary.
