You can open a savings account by visiting a bank branch with your government-issued ID and any cash or checks you wish to deposit. You will also be asked for your address, contact information, and a social security number or taxpayer identification number. You may have to open a checking account as well as a savings account, and there may be a minimum deposit threshold. It is also possible to open a savings account with an online bank.


Savings account rates change often, so it is worth taking the time to compare the offerings from different banks and credit unions. As of August 2022, the best savings rates we could find ranged from 1.5% to 1.85%.


Most banks allow three ways to close an account. You can either visit the bank in person, submit a written cancellation request form, or close the account over the phone. In each case, you may be asked to provide identifying information.

Contributions to a Health Savings Account (HSA): Alabama residents may deduct from gross income deposits made to a health savings account. The HSA contributions are defined as contributions made by a taxpayer to his or her HSA up to the maximum amount allowed pursuant to 26 USC 223. Any contributions made to a heath savings account using pre-tax dollars are not deductible.


This account is used only to pay eligible medical, vision, and dental expenses (as defined by the Internal Revenue Code), along with health insurance and supplemental Medicare premiums and long-term care expenses.


Your financial institution is only required to send a statement showing the amount of interest the account earned, as it does for any other account. The account holder is responsible for keeping accurate records of contributions, distributions, and rollovers.


If you choose, you can move your MSA from one financial institution to another as long as you reinvest the money from the old MSA in a new MSA for the benefit of the same account holder within 60 days of the withdrawal.


You own your account, so you keep your funds even if you change health plans or go to a different job. (NOTE: If you leave state employment, you will be responsible for paying the monthly HSA administrative fee on your HSA. The fee will be deducted from your remaining balance each month.)


If you have less than $25 left in your TexFlex health care account after August 31, you can roll that money into a TexFlex limited-purpose FSA, but you will have to set up the FSA and transfer the money yourself. ERS will not do it for you.

Money in an LFSA can be used only on qualified vision and dental expenses. Only people participating in Consumer Directed HealthSelect can participate in the TexFlex LFSA.If you have less than $25 left in your TexFlex health care account after August 31, you can roll that money into a TexFlex LFSA, but you will have to set up the LFSA and transfer the money yourself.

The first-time homebuyers savings account (FTHSA) is a special type of savings account that helps Iowans save for a first home. As described in Senate File 505, it includes provisions that allow individuals, including those who already own a home, to make tax deductible contributions into an account to be used by a designated person for certain expenses related to purchasing a first home. The account must be opened at a financial institution in Iowa.


Taxpayers may establish multiple accounts as long as each account has different designated beneficiaries. However, the annual and lifetime deduction limits apply to each account holder, not to each account. A taxpayer may be both the account holder and the beneficiary of the same account and an individual can be the designated beneficiary of more than one account. The account must be set-up with an Iowa financial institution. The contributions are required to be in the account for 90 days prior to being used. Any money remaining in the account more than 10 years after the account was opened is considered withdrawn, and the account can no longer be a first-time homebuyer savings account after that time.


This page is intended to provide guidance on the Iowa tax consequences of opening and maintaining an Iowa first-time homebuyer savings account. This page is not intended to provide guidance on the federal tax consequences of this program, if any. Consult your tax preparer or the Internal Revenue Service for information about how contributions to, and distributions from, an Iowa first-time homebuyer savings account may affect your federal taxes. 041b061a72
