Bill of Sale Required for Transferring Vehicle Titles Beginning January 1, 2020
Effective January 1, 2020, the Benton County Treasurer's Office will require customers to provide a bill of sale when transfering titles to motor vehicles between private parties. A bill of sale or purchase agreement is already required from a dealership.
The Iowa State County Treasurer's Association (ISCTA) inconjuction with the Iowa Department of Revenue (IDR) aim to substantiate vehicle purchase prices, which have a direct impact on the fees that are remitted to the State's Road Use Tax Fund.
Many counties already require a bill of sale between private parties and are allowed to do so pursuant to section 321.13 of the Iowa Code. Benton County will join other counties and require a bill of sale effective January 1, 2020. The Bill of Sale should include the seller's name, make, year & VIN of the vehicle along with the buyer's name, date of sale, purchase price and seller's signature.
