Why don't the Company HSA contributions show up on the HSA contributions report. That column is completely blank. Why produce an inaccurate report?

Answer

Let me share some information about Health Saving account, elizabethl.

In QuickBooks Desktop Payroll, the amounts collected via the Health Savings Account payroll item appear in Box 12 of the employee's Form W-2. This represents the employer's HSA contributions. The employee's HSA contributions do not appear on the Form W-2.

To have an accurate report, make sure create to set it up correctly. Check this article on how to create a taxable company contribution HSA payroll item: Set up Tax Tracking Type HSA .

From here, this will just automatically flow in your employee's W-2 forms and company reports. 

Here's also an article on how to correct year-to-date (YTD) additions or deductions on a paycheck when the wrong tracking type was used.

    Keep me posted how it goes and if you have follow-up questions in setting up your payroll items, by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Take care and have a wonderful day.

    People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
