#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Can I roll over an Archer MSA?

Yes, you can roll over a balance from an Archer MSA to an HSA. This rollover contribution won’t count against you with the contribution limit, isn’t deductible, and won’t be included in your income.

Here’s a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. Generally, any distribution from an Archer MSA that you roll over into another Archer MSA or an HSA isn’t taxable if you complete the rollover within 60 days.
  2. An Archer MSA and an HSA can only receive one rollover contribution during a 1-year period.

If you instruct the trustee of your HSA to transfer funds directly to the trustee of another of your HSAs, the transfer isn’t considered a rollover. There is no limit on the number of these transfers.
