A SIMPLE IRA plan provides small employers with a simplified method to contribute toward their employees' and their own retirement savings. Employees may choose to make salary reduction contributions and the employer is required to make either matching or nonelective contributions.
I assume that you made salary reduction contributions to SIMPLE IRA $12500 plus catch-up contribution (up to $3,000 because you are over 50) - total $15300 - so W2 box 1 would report $60000 - $15300 = $44700 - that amount is reported on 1040 line 7.
If you choose to deduct your traditional IRA contribution $6500 - that will be on 1040 line 32 and will reduce your AGI
You may do that because your income is below the modified AGI limit ($61,000 )
Correspondingly - if you qualify - for HSA - you may deduct your $4350 contribution on line 25
and your AGI will be $44700 - $6500 - $4350 = $33850
