A Michigan bill of sale is a form that is used to document the transfer of goods between a private seller and a buyer. The completed form will relay the price paid, the date of transaction, a description of the item sold, and the name, address, and signature of both parties. By executing the bill of sale, the buyer accepts that they cannot return the item once it has been paid for. Likewise, the seller cannot change their mind and reclaim the item once it has been transferred. Although a bill of sale isn’t required for motor vehicle and boat registration, it can be used as proof of purchase when the buyer pays the sales tax.
