In New York when you buy or sell a vehicle, you will usually use a Form MV-50 (Retail Certificate of Sale) to signify the change of ownership for dealer transactions, or for private transactions you'll sign over the Certificate of Title (MV-999) on the back. In addition, the Department of Motor Vehicles recommends that buyers obtain from the seller a bill of sale in addition to the ownership (title) and sales tax documents.
