That's a tax increase.
You know what ... I'll back track a bit and recognize you may very well be saving ~2000 a year with the HSA. I forgot your wife was a Dentist, so you make much more than the average househould. Making an assumption of 400,000 income ... all else being equal ... my tax calculator resulted in a delta of 2000 pretty much spot on (http://www.taxbrain.com/taxcenter/ta...alculator7.asp
... assumptions: 400,000 married filed jointly income, two non-adult kids, 100,000 wage withholding).
