Bill of Sale Requirements in Minnesota
Under certain circumstances, Minnesota requires a bill of sale for vehicles bought and sold there. Bills of sale may sometimes be required for vehicle registration and titling in Minnesota.
Beyond the requirements of the Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS ), a bill of sale is a good idea for both buyers and sellers to record and prove a transaction that has taken place.
Vehicle buyers and sellers who use a bill of sale form should be sure it includes the following information:
- Printed names and addresses and signatures of buyer(s) and seller(s) (all owners must sign)
- Date of purchase
- Complete description of vehicle with make, model, and year
- Vehicle identification number (VIN)
A bill of sale is also a good document to use for tax, insurance, and donation purposes.
