Bill of Sale Required for Transferring Vehicle Titles Beginning January 1, 2020

Effective January 1, 2020, the Wright County Treasurer's Office will require customers to provide a bill of sale when transferring titles to motor vehicles between private parties.  A bill of sale or purchase agreement is already required for vehicles purchased from a dealership.

The Iowa State County Treasurer's Association (ISCTA) in conjunction 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.

The ISCTA Executive Board is encouraging all 99 counties to proactively require a bill of sale to be completed by both the seller and the buyer in advance of any administrative mandate.

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.  Wright 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 of the vehicle, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), buyer's name, date of sale, purchase price, and signature of seller.

A Bill of Sale form is available HERE .


The Wright County Treasurer's Office will be closed to the public beginning at noon, Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice. We will do everyting we can to conduct business through the mail, email, phone or online.  We are in the process of installing a drop box on the westside of the courthouse and it should be available very soon. I apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause, but feel this is necessary to do our part to protect our customers and our staff.
