  • How much could you save?

    Here’s an example. Let’s say Tom decides to set aside $2,000 in an HSA or FSA for the year. Normally, on that money, he’d pay $560 in federal income tax, $100 in state income tax, and $153 in FICA tax. So, by contributing that $2,000 to his HSA or FSA, he’ll get an $813 tax savings for the year.

    Without an HSA or FSA, Tom would pay … Savings
    28% in federal income tax $560
    5% in state income tax $100
    7.65% in Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax $153
    His total tax savings for the year with an HSA or FSA $813
