HSA Tax FormsOn December 9th, 2016 the IRS announced that tax season will begin January 23rd, 2017. With that day fast approaching, we have recently updated our website with all the new health savings account (HSA) tax forms and publications you will need to file your 2016 tax return. Links and a quick explanation of each is listed below:
 

IRS Form 8889

The IRS Form 8889 will need to be filled out by everyone filing an income tax return with a health savings account. It is to report all contributions for the year into your HSA, help you figure out your HSA deduction, and to report the distributions from your HSA.
 

IRS Form 8889 Instructions

The IRS Form 8889 Instructions is a basic guideline with the rules and tips on how to fill out the 8889 Form.
 

IRS Publication 502

The IRS Publication 502 lists all eligible medical expenses for your HSA, as a point of reference.  If necessary, it is also designed to walk you through your itemized deductions for these expenses that you will claim on Schedule A in your 1040 Form.
 

IRS Publication 969

The IRS Publication 969 is for HSAs and other tax-favored health plans, such as MSAs, FSAs and HRAs. It quickly explains each type of account and how the contributions and deductions work for each.
 

Additional Website & Enrollment Form Updates

Our website has also been updated with the new enrollment packets and informational flyers for your 2017 contribution figures. This includes information on how to open an HSA and the logistics, as well as a checklist, information on eligibility & contributions, fees and the application to apply for an HSA.

All of the documents listed above (and more) can be found at the following link:

New HSA Announcement!

Yesterday afternoon we (finally!) launched all of our brand new Health Savings Account Forms at American Health Value, sitewide!  There are hundreds of both new & updated forms for all sorts of different topics:

  • New & Updated Educational Materials
    • Basic to Advanced HSA Information, HSA FAQ's, Employer/Employee "How To" Walkthroughs, etc.
  • New & Updated Marketing Materials
    • Pieces like "HSA vs. Traditional PPO Plans", "The HSA Concept", "Why Use American Health Value", etc.
  • New & Updated Client Forms
    • Deposit Slips, HSA Applications, Rollover Forms, etc.
We took a look back and every single form, and not a one was left untouched.  Some of these forms have just received a new, updated look.  Others however, have been the subjects of a complete overhaul.
 
We've added improvements to everything from functionality, readability & ease-of-use to updated 2012/2013 HSA figures, up-to-the-minute HSA Legislation & online-fillable PDF forms that allow people to type in their information on the form and send it back electronically.
 
QR Codes on American Health Value's HSA Forms
 
 
We've even gone so far as to put QR codes on all our forms that can be printed off & handed out to employees, employers & insurance agents.  This will ensure that if you have a question on one of the forms or any of its content, you'll be able to interact with us immediately (via your smartphone) through our website, phone number and/or social media profiles to get your questions answered on the spot!
 
Below you'll find a nice graphic comparing one of our old forms to the same thing in the newer version, and a couple links to some new forms.  We think it's a huge improvement, what do you guys think?  Let us know in the comment section below!
