What is a Wyoming Bill of Sale?

A Wyoming bill of sale is a document that often coexists with identifying paperwork, such as a certificate of title, registration, or affidavit. However, the bill of sale does not need supporting forms since it can be singular. In other words, it holds power on its own by authenticating the transfer of an item.

Bill of sale forms have two main categories: state and non-state. Individuals only use the document for the state in which they reside. For instance, a Wyoming resident buying a boat would use a Wyoming boat bill of sale. They would not use a generic form or a document for another state.

On the other hand, buyers and sellers can use non-state documents, regardless of their location. An example of this situation is if a buyer purchases a puppy from a seller. They would carry out the transaction using a puppy bill of sale rather than a state-specific form.
