Benjamin Franklin was right on the money when he said, “In this world, nothing can be certain, except Death and Taxes”. 200+ years have passed and nothing has changed.
It’s hard to believe that another April 15th is upon us. It seems like just last week it was New Year’s Day. And now, just like that, it’s tax time…
But, as you know, we cover this every year… the golden tax rule of HSA funding is…..
“….You have until April 15th, or when you file your taxes, whichever comes first, to fund your HSA for the prior year”.
2014 HSA Contribution Limits:
- Single Insurance Coverage: $3,300
- Family Insurance Coverage: $6,550
- Add in an additional $1,000 catch-up if the account holder is 55 or older.
Whew, that being said, it is time to get on it! If you are going to fund for 2014, you need to get that money into your account soon!
The best way to fund is to send a check to our office, clearly defining the year you want the money applied. Use our deposit slip and remember, the envelope needs to be postmarked April 15th, and no later. So get to the post office early!
You can also go to our website and click on Fund My Account. This will take you to our secure funding webpage. Once again, be sure to let us know what year you are funding.
If you don’t want to use our website, and long for that human touch, pick up the phone and give us a call at 1-800-914-3248. One of our helpful HSA specialists will take your information and process your credit card over the phone. Then you can get your tax filing taken care of.
It’s easy as apple pie!
