<<<Form 8889 specifically says NOT to include any contributions your employer reports on your W-2.>>>

Look at line 9 on Form 8889.

It looks to me as though the IRS wants to know the employER contribution to an employees HSA account on that Form.

Easter knows the employer contribution amount, but apparently it was not reported on the W2.

Thanks for your input.
