Over the last several weeks, I have received numerous questions regarding how to complete Part I of Form 8889 for 2008. The reason for this is that the instructions to Form 8889 are very complex and unclear. To assist, I have drafted an explanation that shows how to complete Part I of Form 8889 in 23 different situations.
Form 8889 is used to determine the amount of Health Savings Account (“HSA”) contributions to report on an individual’s Form 1040 for the year.
To obtain a copy of this explanation either send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a copy or go to my website:
A copy can be downloaded off my website. There is no charge for this explanation.
I hope you find this explanation helpful.
