Eh? What?

In "shell speak" you should get the output of the date command appended in the file /path/of/the/file.txt (assuming path exists, have write permission se labels and so on).

You don't "declare" output types (although you can declare variables).

This works:
#!/bin/bash
pt="test.txt"
dt=`/usr/bin/date`
echo $dt > $pt

You could also do:

#!/bin/bash
pt="test.txt"
echo $(/usr/bin/date) > $pt
