REIT in HSA - REIT in Roth IRA
« on: April 04, 2015, 10:56:00 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Via the forum, and Bogleheads I've learned having my REIT in a ROTH IRA keeps my growth "and" dividends tax free even when withdrawn from the account at retirement.  I am wondering if the same rule is true for my HSA?  I recently opened an HSA and have been looking to purchase total stock index funds for it; but I do this already in my 401k and in my IRA <std>...  I only have a tiny % in REIT in my ROTH IRA....

So, I was considering increasing my REIT position, but do it within my HSA... Is the growth, dividends and withdrawals all tax free? (when spend on valid medical expenses).

Thanks in Advance,

Steve NWOutlier

Yes.
