In the State of Nebraska individuals transacting a motor vehicle transfer of ownership must complete a Bill of Sale Form at the time of sale. They are NOT, however, required to use a specific Bill of Sale form. The specific Bill of Sale Form made available by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles is made as a courtesy. Also a Bill of Sale is a good idea for the seller and the buyer to document a vehicle transaction.
The following information should appear on the Nebraska Bill of Sale Form:
– Name of the seller.
– Complete address of the seller.
– Name of the buyer.
– Complete address of the buyer.
– Complete vehicle description, including Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), make, model, year.
– Vehicle odometer reading at the time of sale.
– The price paid.
– Date of sale.
– Signature of both the seller and the buyer.

To transfer ownership of a motor vehicle, motorboat, ATV or minibike, all names that appear on the Certificate of Title must sign off in the Seller’s section of the title. In the case of existing open liens, they must be released by the lienholder and County Official on the face of the title prior to reassignment of the title to the buyer.
Use a good pen to complete the Bill of Sale Form because an illegible form will make it difficult for the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles to complete the vehicle’s title transfer.
If the seller doesn’t provide the buyer with a Bill of Sale, a completed Nebraska Department of Revenue Form 6 – Nebraska Sales/Use Tax and Tire Fee Statement for Motor Vehicle And Trailer Sales is valid as well. However the Form 6 is not available for download and must be obtained by contacting the Nebraska Department of Revenue or any County Treasurer.
