Tax Advantage Accounts
A great way to lower your taxable income and pay for various expenses is to enroll in and contribute to a tax advantage account. When you pay for expenses on a pre-tax basis, your taxable income is lower and you will pay less in taxes at the end of the year. If you expect to have any out-of-pocket health care or day care expenses during the plan year, you will want to consider putting money into a tax-advantage account. Options include: Health Savings Account, Health Care Flexible Spending Account, Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account.
Optional spending accounts allow payroll deductions to be made on a pre-tax basis to pay for health-care expenses not covered by the medical or dental plans and/or dependent-care expenses.
