Additional Savings Options

Health Savings Account (HSA)

A Health Savings Account, commonly known as an HSA, is an account established for the purpose of paying or reimbursing qualified medical expenses.  An HSA provides a way to pay for qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis as well as earn tax-free dollars on account contributions.  Experience these benefits with a Marion County Bank HSA:

  • Every HSA is owned and controlled by the individual.
  • All funds invested in an HSA remain the property of the account owner.
  • Account balances roll over from year to year and accumulate tax-deferred.
  • Choose a free Marion County Bank HSA debit card or checks to pay for qualified expenses.
  • Funds can be held in an interest bearing transaction account or longer term in a certificate of deposit.

Consult your tax or legal professional for guidance.

first-Time Homebuyer Savings Account (FTHSA)

A First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account (FTHSA) is a new type of savings account passed by the Iowa legislature to make purchasing a first home easier.  The law allows Iowans to make tax-deductible contributions into a First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account to be used for the purchase of a home.  Those who already own a home can open and contribute to an account for a designated first-time homebuyer and receive a tax deduction on Iowa state taxes too.

Consult your tax or legal professional for definitive legal guidelines and instructions.

FTHSA Account Benefits
  • Interest Earning – The FTHSA at Marion County Bank is interest earning. Contact a Retail Banker for current rate.
  • Iowa Tax Benefits 
    • The account holder may claim a deduction for Iowa individual income tax made during the year by the account holder.  The amount deducted may not exceed $2,050 for the 2019 tax year.  Married taxpayers who file a joint return may deduct up to $4,100 for the 2019 tax year if the FTHSA is opened and maintained as a joint account.
    • Interest earned on account balances is also exempt from Iowa income tax.
    • The state of Iowa tax deduction for account contributions is available for up to ten years.
    • The annual deduction limits are adjusted annually for inflation.  
  • Home Purchasing Navigation – Purchasing a first home is an exciting and often daunting process.  Our Home Loan experts at Marion County Bank are available to help you or your account beneficiary walk through the steps of account opening, loan pre-qualification, and mortgage product guidance.  Contact Marion County Bank to start the home purchasing journey.
