The seller shall provide the new purchaser a signed bill of sale showing the following: full description of vehicle, the vehicle identification #, amount paid & name(s) & address of the new purchaser. The bill of sale must be signed, dated and show actual mileage at the time of sale. If you have any questions, please contact your local assessorís office.
