KY Bill of Sale Basics

A bill of sale is a handy document recording the transaction of property between two people. Commonly, it is used when one person sells another a used car. In Kentucky, you do not have to provide a bill of sale for any official uses, but it's still a good record to keep for your files, tax purposes, or to protect yourself in case the buyer fails to register the car or abandons it at a later date.
