2016 HSA Contribution Deadline

(January 12, 2016) The deadline for making HSA contributions for tax year 2016 is Tuesday, April 18, 2017. While the deadline for making HSA contributions is typically April 15th (the HSA owner's tax-filing deadline for the year), by law, filing and payment deadlines (including the deadline for making HSA contributions) that fall on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday are timely satisfied if met on the next business day. Legal holiday includes a legal holiday observed in the District of Columbia. For tax year 2016 HSA contributions, the later than usual contribution deadline is a result of April 15th falling on a Saturday, which is followed by Emancipation Day (a holiday observed in the District of Columbia) on Sunday, April 16th, which will be observed on Monday, April 17th. As a result, all U.S. taxpayers, nationwide have until Tuesday, April 18, 2017 to make HSA contributions for tax year 2016.

Patriots’ Day, which has played a role in the HSA contribution deadline in recent years for some taxpayers, will not further extend the deadline for 2016 HSA contributions, as Patriot’s Day is also observed on Monday, April 17th, 2017.
