Form MV-912, Vehicle Bill of Sale, also known as the New York Car Bill of Sale, despite being made for both vehicles and boats, is a legal document that records the purchase of a vehicle or vessel and subsequent exchange of ownership for a certain sum of money. It establishes crucial data in relation to the item in question, seller, purchaser, and transaction details. An accurately filled out and signed bill of sale must be presented to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles office in order to receive new title and registration for the car or boat. It is not as formalized as a deed or a title, but this document is still recognized by courts of law in case a dispute about the vehicle occurs in the future.
This form was released by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The latest version of the form was issued in December 2016 with all previous editions obsolete. You can download a fillable Form MV-912 through the link below.
