Here's Why You Shouldn't Abbreviate 2020 When Writing the Date

An illustration of a woman jumping from the year 2019 to 2020As we enter a new year, people across the internet are pushing a new helpful tip. 

Don't write the date 1/2/20, write out 2020 in full.

Why? The date is easily changeable and could be used against you. 

"It could possibly protect you and prevent legal issues on paperwork," according to Hamilton County, Ohio, Auditor Dusty Rhodes.

"Example: If you just write 1/1/20, one could easily change it to 1/1/2017 (for instance) and now your signature is on an incorrect document," Rhodes said. 

The East Millinocket Police Department in Maine shared a similar post on Facebook.

"This is very sound advice and should be considered when signing any legal or professional document. It could potentially save you some trouble down the road," the police department said.
