Kansas Bill of Sale Templates

A Kansas bill of sale is a document that follows a transaction between private parties regarding transferring ownership to a particular item. Some of the most common things private parties trade for money are motor vehicles, boats, equipment, animals, furniture, and artwork.

Regardless of what is purchased and sold, documenting the details of a deal in the form of a bill of sale will help the parties involved get legal protection in case either of the sides has any claims in the future.

Kansas requires sellers and purchasers to use specific forms when it comes to deals involving vehicles and boats. The Form TR-312 by the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Division of Vehicles should be used for vehicle transactions. You can also use the official form released by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism (KDWPT) for boats.

For Vehicles

In Kansas, you have to record your vehicle within 60 days after the purchase or when you have transferred it to the state. There is also a minimum liability coverage requirement for car insurance – $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. Please mind that only antique vehicles (vehicles 35 years old or older) can have ownership transferred by bill of sales. In all other cases, the assigned title should be used.

For Boats

You will have to register and number your vessel if it is powered by a motor (gasoline, diesel, or electric) or sail. The standard fee for boat registration in Kansas is $42.50.

For Firearms

No Kansas law requires firearm owners to register their guns in the state, and the transfer of ownership of guns brought from other states doesn’t have to be documented either. There are no specific requirements for open carry, meaning that a license or permit is not required.
