Why Abbreviating The Date In 2020 Could Be Dangerous

With the new year comes... a new way to write the date?

Experts are saying everyone should write the date as 3/23/2020 instead of 3/23/20.


Because if you write 3/23/20, anyone could easily add a couple of digits to make it look like another year in the past or a year in the future, for example, 3/23/2015 or 3/23/2022.

Writing the year 2020 in full “could possibly protect you and prevent legal issues on paperwork,” Hamilton County, Ohio, Auditor Dusty Rhodes tweeted on New Year’s Eve.

So keep that in mind as you're writing our checks and signing documents this year!
