Why do I have to pay tax on HSA distribution?
HSA distributions However, if your 1099-SA indicates you did not use the distribution for qualified medical expenses, you will pay income tax on the portion you used for unqualified expenses. You report the taxable amount on the “other income” line of your tax return and write “HSA” beside it.
Do HSA roll over?
One key benefit of HSAs is that funds automatically rollover from year to year keeping past investments within reach to pay for future medical expenses. This is particularly important with regards to HSAs, as employees can only contribute a limited amount each year to their accounts otherwise.
Can you use your spouse’s HSA?
You can use an HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses for yourself, a spouse, and your dependents, even if they are covered by other insurance.
Do HSA funds expire?
The money you contribute to an HSA has no “expiration date.” You can withdraw funds you need to pay for everyday out-of-pocket health care expenses or save them for care you may need years down the road.
Do you lose your HSA money at the end of the year?
No. HSA money is yours to keep. Unlike a flexible spending account (FSA), unused money in your HSA isn’t forfeited at the end of the year; it continues to grow, tax-deferred.
Are HSA withdrawals tax-free after 65?
Age 65 General Distributions At age 65, you can take penalty-free distributions from the HSA for any reason. However, in order to be both tax-free and penalty-free the distribution must be for a qualified medical expense. Withdrawals made for other purposes will be subject to ordinary income taxes.
Is HSA taxed after 65?
Once you turn 65, you can also choose to treat your HSA like a retirement account! If you withdraw money from your HSA for something other than qualified medical expenses before you turn 65, you have to pay income tax plus a 20% penalty. But after you turn 65, that 20% penalty no longer applies, so withdraw away!
What happens if you don’t use HSA money?
Your HSA can be a backup retirement account If you withdraw money from your HSA before you turn 65 and you’re not using it to pay for qualified medical expenses, you’ll have to pay income tax and a 20% penalty. (Don’t do this unless it’s a dire emergency!)

What happens to HSA money when you retire?
If you’re 65 or older, retired and on Medicare, you’re no longer eligible to contribute to the HSA, but can continue to use the funds for qualified medical expenses. If you’re 65 or older, you’re not limited to using an HSA just for health care expenses.
What if I never use my HSA account?
With an HSA, there’s no “use it or lose it” provision. This is one of the primary differences between an HSA and an FSA. If you put money in your HSA and then don’t withdraw it, it will remain in the account and be available to you in future years.
