Taxpayers who have healthcare coverage under a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

HDHPs, health insurance plans with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional health plan, are a requirement for having a health savings account.

The IRS recently announced relief for taxpayers with family coverage under an HDHP, who contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA). They may now treat $6,900 as the maximum deductible HSA contribution.

A change in the inflation adjustment calculations for 2018 under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act reduced the maximum deductible HSA contribution for taxpayers with family coverage under an HDHP by $50, to $6,850.

Thanks to the recent IRS announcement, Revenue Procedure 2018-27, this relief for affected taxpayers allows the $6,900 limitation to remain in effect for 2018.
