Texas Bill of Sale

In Texas, it is advisable that one completes a bill of sale when selling or buying a motor vehicle. While you can transfer the car to another by presenting the vehicle's certificate of origin, using a Texas bill of sale will probably save you some time.

The Texas Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division provides a standard bill of sale form, which should include: the date the car was sold, the amount for which it was purchased, the names and addresses of both the buyer and the seller, the vehicle's make, model and year, its vehicle identification number (VIN) and any liens associated with the ownership of the vehicle.
