What Is Return to Maker on a Check?

Answer

Sometimes return to maker or refer to maker is written on a check and is often abbreviated as RTM on a check. This means that you should get in touch with the person who originally wrote the check and find out why the bank did not accept it for payment. If the person who wrote the check doesn't know why the check was returned, then the maker needs to contact the bank to find out why.
