how do i find employer hsa contributions


    Hello brownpierre321
    We do apologize for the delay on the response.

    A Medical Savings Account (MSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-exempt trust or custodial account, established by you and your employer, to pay for your qualified medical expenses. Distributions are reported on Form 1099-SA.

    Important: Regular health insurance premiums which are deducted from employee paychecks are not MSAs or HSAs. Check with your payroll department if you are not sure.

    Here's how to enter MSA, HSA, and 1099-SA information in TurboTax:

    1. Select the Federal Taxes tab (the Personal tab in the Home & Business edition).
    2. Select the Wages & Income subtab, click on I'll choose what I work on.
    3. Scroll down the Wages & Income screen until you see the Less Common Income group.
    4. Click on the Start/Update button to the right of the 1099-SA, HSA, MSA category.
    5. Follow the prompts.

    I hope this information has been helpful.

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
