Good Day

I need some help. I am reading through IRS Pub 969. It can be found here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p969.pdf

Where I am hung up is under Flexible Spending Arrangements (FSA) pg 17 under "Qualified medical expenses are those incurred by the following persons"

they do not include the "tip" that is included under HRA's and MSA's. The tip reads " For this purpose, a child of parents that are divorced, separated, or living apart for the last 6 months of the calendar year is treated as the dependent of both parents where or not the custodial parent releases the claim to the child's exemption."

My question is why was that "tip" excluded under a TSA? It seems to me if it is applicable under a HRA and a MSA it should follow under the TSA as well.

Your interpretation of this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Gary
