“Did you contribute to a HAS?” Oops, AutoCorrect!

Contributing to a health savings account may be a smart tax move, but that’s a post for another day.

E-mailing someone to ask about health savings account contributions can be a troublesome for a tax accountant. The commonly used acronym for health savings accounts (HSA) autocorrects to HAS. Fortunately, it’s pretty simple to change that in Microsoft Outlook.

Go to File > Options > Mail > Spelling and AutoCorrect, and then AutoCorrect Options.  Type in “HSA” in the box under where it says Replace (see screenshot below).  With it highlighted, all you have to do is click on the delete box.

All of you mischievous souls out there can use this same AutoCorrect window to prank your friends, changing real words to something funny – but again, that’s a post for another day.
