Step 1: Get a pen. They are permanent. No one can alter it easily like they could if you use a pencil.
Step 2: Write who the check is to in the pay to section. Write the amount underneath that in words and use numbers to write the amount in the box with the dollar sign.

Step 4: Sign and date the check and you’re all set.
