I usually come in the office and run/print checks before heading out to meet my employees. If I don't manually change the date, QB will set the check date 10 days into the future!It uses the pay date from your payroll schedule. Perhaps that is incorrect.

If you are looking at these checks as if they are promissory notes for later payment you should post them to a current asset account - but again, they have no value now that I can see. They are not actually an asset until the money is yours.State and federal laws cover the cashing and depositing of postdated checks, and laws vary from state to state.It's not illegal to postdate a check, unless you're attempting to commit fraud.Some states, including California and Georgia, place responsibility on check writers to ensure their checks are not cashed or deposited too quickly.Other states, like West Virginia, place responsibility on the person the check is written to.
