Among 嘘をつく, 嘘を吐く and 嘘を付く, which one is better to use? Out of those three I found in my dictionary, the third one doesn't seem to be used since google automatically redirects it to うそをつく or 嘘をつく, which are the ones I usually use. 嘘を吐く also seems to be used often according to the search result I found, plus it is used in a game I'm playing. It would be nice to hear from a Japanese speaker since my Japanese is nowhere enough to tell which one is better.

Thing is people use much more kanji writing on the PC than they do when handwriting. This is a key factor IMHO in the present-day written Japanese.

Truth is most people usually write the phrase as うそをつく or ウソをつく in handwriting. When word-processing, we often tend to write it as 嘘をつく or 嘘を吐く with the former being more common. Aesthetically, 嘘を付く will not please many native speakers.

In conclusion, I would recommend the two kana versions or 嘘をつく but remember that it would look/sound like a serious/malicious lie (than a casual lie/kidding) if you use the kanji for うそ.  
Tóm lại thì ta có:
うそをつく hoặc ウソをつく: Dạng phổ biến, dùng khi lời nói dối là vô hại hoặc quên kanji
嘘をつく嘘を吐く: Dùng khi muốn chỉ định lời nói dối mang sắc thái tiêu cực
嘘を付く: Tránh sử dụng
