Although the State of Alaska does not provide a fillable or printable bill of sale form for vehicle sales, it does require the following information on the document:
- Detailed information about buyer and seller including addresses and phone numbers.
- Complete vehicle information such as Make, Model, Year, Odometer reading, and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

- Signature of both buyer and seller.
Based on the required information, we created a fillable bill of sale in PDF format for you if you sell or buy a vehicle in Alaska State.
In addition, to protect the seller, we included the AS IS term in the bill of sale. It means that the vehicle is sold AS IS. The buyer will be responsible for any defect or faults of the vehicle whether they are obvious or not.
There is an odometer reading disclosure to protect the buyer from any fraud that may happen to the current situation of the vehicle.
To complete the sales transaction, the seller must provide the buyer with the title. To transfer a title legally, the seller is required to sign and release on the title, and complete the assignment to the buyer. Then the seller must notify Alaska DMV about the status of the title transfer. For more information on the selling vehicle in Alaska, check it out the guide from DMV.
