Montana Bill of Sale Forms

A Montana bill of sale is a proof of purchase document used by buyers and sellers to complete private transactions involving personal property. Some types of personal property, such as cars, boats, and firearms, have their own bills of sale geared specifically towards selling those items. A general/generic bill of sale can be used to record the transfer of all other types of personal property. A bill of sale contains a description of the property sold, the final sale price, the names and contact information of the buyer and seller, and each party’s signature. These forms are useful for proving transfer of ownership and, in some cases, for tax reporting purposes.
