Bill of Sale Requirements in Alaska

Bill of Sale in Alaska

The Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles does not require a bill of sale for buying or selling a vehicle in the Last Frontier state. Rather, sellers must transfer the title to buyers, which you can read more about on our Title Transfer in Alaska page. A bill of sale can be helpful, though, in many situations related to buying or selling a vehicle in Alaska.

Why Use a Bill of Sale?

You may desire a bill of sale to record your vehicle purchase or sale for tax purposes, as a receipt for your files (which could be helpful if you move to a state requiring a bill of sale), or to protect against legal issues in the future. A bill of sale generally includes information about the transaction, such as:

  • A vehicle description and vehicle identification number (VIN).
  • Warranty information.
  • The vehicle's final sale price.
  • Names of the buyer and seller.
  • The county and state where you bought or sold the vehicle.
