BILL OF SALE, DEMAND NOTE AND MOTOR VEHICLE TRUST REGISTRATION
The Bill of Sale is a document that is used to sell/transfer ownership of assets from one person/entity (e.g., revocable trust, LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp) to a trust. The seller does not necessarily have to be you, anyone can sell assets to your trust.
A list of all assets should be created and attached to the Bill of Sale. This list will be called “Exhibit A”. This document requires notarized signatures and should be kept in your trust book.
The Demand Note is a return of capital, a note payable from the trust with no fixed term or repayment schedule. The Demand Note is used to take money from the trust tax free and is normally taken for expenses that the trust won’t cover (clothing, vacation, etc.). Every time that money is taken from the trust for things that the trust won’t cover, it will reduce your demand note. This document requires notarized signatures and should be kept in your trust book.

When you download the Blank Exhibit A, you will use this document to create your list of all assets that you want to “sell” to the trust. We do not require a copy of your Exhibit A, but you will need to keep it somewhere safe as this will be attached to your Bill of Sale documents once completed. Upon completing your list of assets on Exhibit A, you will need to value the assets at their cost basis (what you paid for the asset). Once you have calculated the Grand Total, you are ready to complete Step 2.”
