Virtually everything I've seen indicates you can fund it up through the tax filing deadline (i.e. 4/15/2008 for the 2007 tax year). I haven't seen anything "official" in an IRS document, though.It may not be feasible in your case (and it's pretty late in the year for it now), but anyone who can fund their HSA through pre-tax deductions in a qualified Section 125 cafeteria plan can avoid paying Social Security and Medicare taxes on their HSA contribution by having the contributions withheld from the paycheck (i.e. those taxes will not be withheld for the amount contributed). Any out-of-pocket funding you make outside of such a qualified pre-tax payroll deduction will allow you to eventually exclude the contribution amount from your 1040 taxable income, but you will have to pay it with money that has already been taxed for the 7.65% you pay to Social Security and Medicare.#29
