My understanding was that the additional $1000 catch-up for Health Savings Accounts was also deductible.
However, line 13 on Form 8889 forces you to report the smaller of Line 2 ($6150) or Line 12 ($7150).
The effect is that it takes away the $1000 catch-up and only allows you to enter the standard $6150 deduction on the 1040 form. (rather than the $7150)
Has anyone come across this discrepancy ? This is driving me crazy!
(I mistakenly posted this in the Health forum so I'm sorry for the duplication)
