Status message

There are 8 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 26 CFR 54. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 54.4980G-2 Employer contribution defined.
Q-1: Do the comparability rules apply to amounts rolled over from an employee's HSA or Archer Medical Savings Account (Archer MSA)?
A-1: No. The comparability rules do not apply to amounts rolled over from an employee's HSA or Archer MSA.
Q-2: If an employee requests that his or her employer deduct after-tax amounts from the employee's compensation and forward these amounts as employee contributions to the employee's HSA, do the comparability rules apply to these amounts?
A-2: No. Section 106(d) provides that amounts contributed by an employer to an eligible employee's HSA shall be treated as employer-provided coverage for medical expenses and are excludible from the employee's gross income up to the limit in section 223(b). After-tax employee contributions to an HSA are not subject to the comparability rules because they are not employer contributions under section 106(d).
