News Alert: IRS extends deadline for contributing to HSAs

As a follow-up to IRS Notice 2020-18, the IRS today confirmed that contributions to health savings accounts (HSAs) will be accepted up to the new filing deadline of July 15, 2020. The IRS states that contributions to an HSA may be made at any time during the year or by the due date for filing that year’s tax returns. This applies to the new federal income tax filing deadline for 2020, which was first announced this past weekend in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

For more details on this and other questions related to the filing and payment deadline, visit the FAQ page published by the IRS.
