WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced that interest rates will increase for the calendar quarter beginning July 1, 2022. The rates will be:
Under the Internal Revenue Code, the rate of interest is determined on a quarterly basis. For taxpayers other than corporations, the overpayment and underpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus three percentage points.
Generally, in the case of a corporation, the underpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus three percentage points, and the overpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus two percentage points. The rate for large corporate underpayments is the federal short-term rate plus five percentage points. The rate on the portion of a corporate overpayment of tax exceeding $10,000 for a taxable period is the federal short-term rate plus one-half (0.5) of a percentage point.
The interest rates announced today are computed from the federal short-term rate determined during April 2022 to take effect May 1, 2022, based on daily compounding.

The Internal Revenue Service has raised the annual contribution limit to a health savings account to $3,850 for an individual and $7,750 for a family for the 2023 calendar year. The current limit is $3,650 for an individual and $7,300 for a family.
HSAs are available only to people with a high deductible health plan, which the IRS defines for 2023 as a plan with an annual deductible that is not less than $1,500 for self-only coverage or $3,000 for family coverage.
The IRS also says annual out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles, co-payments, and other amounts, but not premiums) for a high deductible health plan cannot exceed $7,500 for single coverage or $15,000 for family coverage.
The Board of Trustees of the Social Security Trust Fund reports each year on the financial condition of the social security program. The 2022 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Federal Disability Insurance Trust Funds, issued on June 2, includes both short- and long-term projections about the social security system.
Using the “intermediate” projections, the board projects the social security wage base will be $155,100 in 2023 (up from $147,000 this year) and will increase to $218,400 by 2031. The formal announcement of the 2023 wage base will not come until mid-October.
The projections, which are only an indication of the expected trend, are based on social security program provisions in current law and do not take into account any changes in these provisions that might be made in the future.
