Errors: Look carefully at the error. You will be required to add or subtract form either the checkbook or bank statement. Here are some examples to help you: e.i. Entry Error: You wrote a check for $123, but recorded the transaction as $132. Since you overstated the charge for $9, you’ll need to make an adjusting entry in your checkbook (referencing the charge) to add the $9 back in. e.ii. Duplicate Charge: If your bank charged you with a duplicate charge, make sure you bring it to light with them, but also subtract that amount from your bank statement, for your own records. e.iii. Unknown charge: alert your bank of the situation and subtract that amount from your bank statement e.iv. Bank Entry Error: You wrote a check for $123, but the bank recorded the transaction as $132. The bank over charged you $9. So, once you alert the bank of the situation, add $9 back into your account on the bank statement. 5. Now calculate your new checkbook balance and Statement balance. They should be equal, or “balanced”. If not go over these steps and look for mistakes. These steps should make it simple for you to balance your personal checkbook at home. If you come across something strange or difficult always feel free to contact your local Wells Fargo branch and they’ll be happy to help you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
