An Illinois bill of sale form is used to record the details of a private sale between a buyer and a seller, including the transaction date, purchase price, and a description of the item. Certain transactions necessitate a bill of sale. For instance, the buyer will be required to present a signed bill of sale when applying for titling and registration in their name after purchasing a used motor vehicle. Furthermore, a bill of sale can be used to prove the purchase price when paying sales tax on used motor vehicles and boats. Firearms require a special bill of sale which the seller must keep in their records for a minimum of ten (10) years following the sale. The general bill of sale should be used for the sale of any personal property that doesn’t require registration.
