Many Americans are aware of the tax benefits from certain savings accounts such as individual retirement accounts, or 401(k) plans; but the less-known HSA can provide some major tax relief. Here’s three ways:

1. Tax-deductible contributions. All money you set aside for your HSA from your paycheck goes into your HSA account without the financial burden of paying taxes.

2. Interest is earned tax-free. Don’t worry about paying any taxes on the interest you’ve earned in your HSA like you would in other saving vehicles – interest is never taxed.

3. For medical expenses, account withdrawals are tax-free. From acupuncture to new prescription glasses; your HSA can be used for most medically-related expenses. Withdrawing money from your account to pay for these allows you to skip taxes – again.1
