IRS Updates 2018 HSA Contribution Limit

On March 5, 2018, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2018-18 in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2018-10 which provided new recalculated limitations. It reduced the maximum family HSA contribution for those with family coverage under an HDHP from $6,900 (as previously announced in Rev. Proc. 2017-37 on May 4, 2017) to a new limit of $6,850. 

On April 26, 2018, the IRS released another adjustment of the family contribution limit for HSA accountholders. They have removed the $50 reduction, and the limit has returned to the original $6,900 maximum for family coverage. This can be found in Rev. Proc. 2018-27.
