IRS Issues 2011 Version of Publication 969 on HSAs, HRAs, Health FSAs and MSAs


Publication 969 has been updated for use in preparing 2011 tax returns. This publication provides basic information about HSAs, HRAs, health FSAs, Archer MSAs and Medicare Advantage MSAs, including brief descriptions of benefits, eligibility requirements, contribution limits and distribution issues. There are very few changes to the 2011 version. The publication has been updated to reflect two changes that apply beginning in 2011: the prescription requirement for OTC drugs (other than insulin) purchased after 2010, and the increase (to 20 percent) in the additional tax on HSA and MSA distributions not used for qualified medical expenses.
