Bill of Sale Requirements in Vermont
Whether you are buying or selling a vehicle in Vermont, a Bill of Sale and Odometer Disclosure Statement (Form TA-VT-05) is required for all transactions. It can be easily downloaded or picked up at any DMV location and at most town clerk offices.
Not only does the Bill of Sale verify your transaction, but it also helps the DMV determine what sales tax to charge. Make sure all of the information you provide is accurate.
Don't guess when filling in the vehicle identification number (VIN). It must match the number on the car. Taking the time to double check is strongly suggested. Any discrepancy will stall the processing of your registration and the issuing of your plates.
