A Mississippi bill of sale records a transaction between a buyer and seller involving vehicles, water vessels, weapons, or any other type of personal property. A bill of sale may not always be required for private sales between parties, but it can be useful for tax purposes, for proving ownership, or for registering the property in the new owner’s name. For example, when a person buys a boat from a private seller, they will most likely need the bill of sale to register the boat so they can operate the vessel on public waters. All bills of sale have a notary acknowledgment section that can be used if the parties wish to guarantee the authenticity of the document’s signatures.
