    Normally, this form must be mailed to participants and the IRS by May 31 every year. The IRS recently released Notice 2021-21 outlines that the due date for filing and furnishing Form 5498SA is now June 30, 2021.

These two forms are used to help you complete IRS Form 8889. Come tax time, anyone who contributed to or received a distribution from an HSA will need to fill out Form 8889. It would be attached to Form 1040 when you report the tax.

The purpose of these tax forms is to (1) report all contributions to your HSA in order to figure your tax deduction (2) report distributions, and (3) determine the tax and penalty to be applied to any contributions you make in excess of your prorated ceiling if you lose your eligibility to fund your account during the calendar year.

Form 8889 has a line for reporting your direct contributions to your HSA, and you’ll carry that deduction to line 25 of your Form 1040. Ineligible payouts are taxable, and you need to report them on line 21 of Form 1040.

You must file Form 8889 if any of the following applies.

  • You (or someone on your behalf, including your employer) made contributions for the tax year to your HSA.

  • You received HSA distributions in the tax year.

  • You must include certain amounts in income because you failed to be an eligible individual during the testing period.

  • You acquired an interest in an HSA because of the death of the account beneficiary.
