How to Write a Check?

The first line on the check is who that check is going to, example: John Smith, you would write that on the line and then behind the name draw a line so that nothing can be placed behind it. Next is the box to the right where dollar amount goes, example: $100.00, you write it out just like that. Then below you spell the amount out, example: One hundered dollars and no/100. Lastly you would sign your name and be sure to date the check at the top.
