WSA and Employee Taxes

Does the WSA allowance add to an employee's taxable income? 

Yes, it is important to note WSA allowances are taxable for the employee, meaning WSA funds used by an employee contribute to their yearly taxable income (T4). Unused dollars in a WSA plan do not add to an employee’s taxable income.
