A bill of sale documents the transfer of ownership of an item from one party to another, more specifically from the Seller to the Buyer. It also serves as a receipt or proof of sale. In most states a bill of sale is required to register a motor vehicle.
As the seller, it is imperative that you verify the buyer’s identity and retain a copy of the bill of sale. Let’s say you sell a car. Two hours later the police knock on your door and inform you that the car hit a pedestrian and left the scene of the accident. You’d better hope you have a copy of the bill of sale to prove you sold that vehicle!
