Bill of Sales Form & Steps to Purchasing a Bike...

Where can I find a Bill of Sales form, and once I have bought a bike what are the steps to getting the title in your name (when you have bought a bike from a private owner)?...Ive once saw the form or an example of the bill of sales form in the bikes for sale forum but now I dont see it on there anymore ....

Oh also when you buy a bike from a private owner do you still have to pay the tax?...I know title and license you do...

Thx

Print that, 3rd page is all you need. 1, 2, and 4th are all directions. Gray areas are for the seller, white areas are you. And yes you pay the tax, just like a vehicle....sucks.

Take that form and the title(signed front and back by owner listed on the title, and back by you) up to your local tax office. One day I'll do a write up attempting to explain the ins and outs of the tax office and vehicle transfers.


Good Luck

Attached, is a generic motorcycle bill of sale.


As far as paying for taxes on a private party sale:

If money changes hands then technically you will have to pay whatever the state says is the "standard presumptive value". Meaning, whether you pay $1 or $10000 on a bike, the state will tax you on what they say it is worth.

However, if no money changes hands then the bike is considered a "gift". You will have to pay a $10 fee, but you will not have to pay any taxes on the bike.

if the purchase was made from a private owner, Texas will either use the presumptive value or the actual sale price, whichever is higher.

Short answer:

They use the vehicle's presumptive value to base the taxes off:

http://www.dot.state.tx.us/drivers_v...tive_value.htm

I believe it's 6.25% of that value

Again, you are taxed ONLY when money changes hands. If it was given to you then there are no taxes collected. If it is a private transaction then the taxing authority has no way of knowing if you bought it or if it was given to you. Know what I am sayin'?
