There is still time to make contributions to your or your employees’ 2021 Health Savings Account

April 11, 2022

The deadline to contribute to an HSA for the 2021 Income Tax Year is April 18, 2022.

The due date is April 18, instead of April 15, because of the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia – even if you don’t live in the District of Columbia.

  1. 1. Click into your HSA account (make sure there is a bank account linked)
  2. 2. Click on ‘Contributions’
  3. 3. Select ‘Prior Year’ as the contribution year
