What is an Arkansas Bill of Sale?
An Arkansas bill of sale puts a deal between two (2) people in writing by defining the terms of an ownership transfer. The form denotes the item’s condition and its value during the sale. Both parties must include an accurate valuation, even if the owner gifts the object to the new owner. Note that the state requires additional forms for the gifted property.
Each person involved should hold onto a copy of the bill of sale to maintain the transfer record. The new owner could need it for registration, proving ownership, or when re-selling the item. Individuals should safely store the document as obtaining a new one can prove difficult, especially if they cannot contact the previous owner. Keeping it protected also prevents legal issues if someone steals the bill of sale and (wrongfully) claims the item as lost or their own.
