Many employees save taxes by placing funds in their employer’s health or dependent care flexible spending arrangements (FSAs). It’s a good time to review 2020 expenditures and project amounts to be set aside for 2021. A pre-tax contribution of $2,750 to a health FSA is permitted in 2020. To avoid forfeiture of your health FSA funds because of a “use-it-or-lose-it” rule, you must make eligible medical expenditures by the last day of the plan year (Dec. 31 for a calendar year plan), unless the plan allows an optional grace period. Like health FSAs, dependent care FSAs are also generally subject to a use-it-or-lose-it rule. Other rules and exceptions may apply.
