Arkansas Bill of Sale

A bill of sale is a certificate that documents transaction details. If you are buying or selling a vehicle, this document will provide proof of the transfer of personal property. A bill of sale must include the date of sale, description of the vehicle (year, make and model), vehicle identification number or VIN, name of buyer, amount of sale and the name, address and signature of seller(s). It must also include the odometer reading of the vehicle. The odometer reading reports the mileage of a vehicle. You may need a bill of sale when buying or selling a vehicle, applying for a sales tax credit, register your car and others. If you purchase a new or used vehicle from a dealer, the dealer is required to provide you with an official bill of sale. However, if you purchase a used car from a private party, you and the seller must create your own bill of sale.
