A Texas Vehicle Bill of Sale (also known as a sales slip) is a type of form used statewide in motor vehicle transactions. There are, in total, four bills of sale released by state authorities:
- Form 130-U, Application for Texas Title and/or Registration, is a legal document used to submit an application for vehicle title and registration after the motor vehicle changed its owner. Basically, it serves as a bill of sale, because it includes all the information needed for the vehicle transaction.
- Form VTR-203, Salvage Vehicle Dealer Bill of Sale for a Junk Motor Vehicle, is filled out only by salvage vehicle dealers when the junk vehicle is transferred to a metal recycler.
- Form VTR-63, Component Part(s) Bill of Sale, is completed with Form VTR-61, Rebuilt Vehicle Statement, when you submit a new application for the motor vehicle title and this vehicle has component parts.
- Form VTR-207, Inventory of Component Parts Purchased/Affidavit Bill of Sale, is a supplementary form that includes a fuller description of component parts that the sold vehicle contains;
- Form VTR-346, Texas Motor Vehicle Transfer Notification, is submitted within a month from the vehicle's date of sale to protect the seller from liability for criminal acts involving the vehicle.
Harris County has its own region-specific bills of sale for motor vehicles.
