1. The total amount for the year from all sources may not exceed your annual contribution limit. Contributions may be made to your HSA during the tax year and up until the due date for filing your federal income tax return, not including extensions. Except for certain rollovers and transfers, all contributions must be made in the form of money (e.g. cash, checks, or money order). Contributions are governed by the IRS and are subject to change from year to year. 2. Vista Bank will not track which expenses are qualified. The client is responsible for recording expenses for tax reporting purposes. Any funds not used for qualified medical expenses may be subject to taxation per the IRS guidelines.
