A Nebraska motor vehicle bill of sale is a document that acts as proof of purchase for the private sale of a vehicle between a seller and buyer. The form will list the vehicle’s make, year, and vehicle identification number (VIN), as well as the names and contact information of the buyer and seller. When a purchaser registers a vehicle in their name following a private transaction in Nebraska, they will need to present a bill of sale. Furthermore, the bill of sale will be used to calculate the amount of motor vehicle tax that the buyer will need to pay.
Nebraska Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney – Both the seller and purchaser in a vehicle transaction can use this form to legally permit another individual to transfer a title, buy, or sell a vehicle on their behalf.
