South Dakota Bill of Sale Forms


The South Dakota bill of sale form provides a valuable record of the transaction occurring when an item of personal property is exchanged for financial compensation. The context of the agreement makes a declaration of the facts surrounding the sale and illuminates details of the seller, buyer, and property to transfer possession. This document authenticates the event and secures protection from any liability incurred after the item has changed hands.

Firearm Registration Forms

South Dakota does not compile a system of registration for firearms within the state, so individuals who wish to obtain a weapon will not be required to register. Carrying of a long gun openly is acceptable in allowable areas, and carry of a handgun outside of one’s private property will mandate the granting of a Concealed Carry Weapons Permit. The state offers a total of 3 different permits, each allowing for transport within individual specified states. To apply for a permit, you can arrive at your local county sheriff’s office with the following documents in hand:

  • A notarized South Dakota Concealed Pistol Permit Application
  • Proof of fulfillment of an accepted gun safety course
  • A valid photo identification card or driver’s license
  • A fingerprint identification card
  • Proper payment to cover all associated fees
