Dollar Amounts

Always use the full figure excluding decimals (cents) unless the cents are stated. Use a comma as a separator where applicable.

Dollar amounts over “one million dollars” should be transcribed as “$1 million”. If the speaker does not say “dollar,” do not use the dollar sign ($).

If the speaker mentions “bucks” please type the dollar sign. E.g:

A hundred bucks —> $100.


How much cash do you have? (A response of just “[three-hundred thousand]” would be typed out as 300,000)


$4 million
