A Maine bill of sale is a form that is completed by the buyer and seller to record the sale and transfer of personal property. The document will need to include the date of purchase, the amount paid, and a description of the item being sold. It is also required for the buyer and the seller to provide their contact information and signatures. In Maine, an individual selling a used motor vehicle or boat must supply the buyer with a signed bill of sale document. This is because the buyer will need to present the signed document when they register the vehicle in their name. The bill of sale can also be used as evidence of the purchase price when calculating the excise tax the buyer will be required to pay on the motor vehicle or boat.
