CHECKS: Cashier V. Certified V. Money Order V. Bank Draft

By Staff Reporters

Types of Checks

A cashier’s check is a check drawn from the bank’s own funds, not yours, and signed by a cashier or teller. Unlike a regular check, the bank, not the check writer, guarantees payment of a cashier’s check. A cashier’s check can also be called an official check.

A certified check is a personal check that the payer’s bank has certified to be legitimate and has earmarked the funds for the check. It’s a type of “official” payment. People often confuse certified checks with cashier’s checks. … Then, the bank prints a check against the funds they are holding.

A money order is a method of paying for something with cash using a check from a third party. You pay for the money order, and the third party issues you a check that you can give or send to someone. This person deposits the money order in their bank account or exchanges it for cash at a business or post office.

A bank draft is a negotiable instrument where payment is guaranteed by the issuing bank. Banks verify and withdraw funds from the requester’s account and deposit them into an internal account to cover the amount of the draft. A seller may require a bank draft when they have no relationship with the buyer.

  1. CASH-OLA

    Anyone depositing more than $10,000 in cash into their bank account should be aware that their bank will report the deposit by completing IRS Form 8300. It’s also worth noting that this rule applies to more than just cash deposits.

    If you plan to deposit more than $10,000 in foreign currency, cashier’s checks, traveler’s checks, or money orders, your bank will also need to report the bank deposit to the IRS. Personal checks, however, aren’t an issue and don’t apply to this rule.
