  • Actually I would use sincerely, it's less personal than Yours, or Yours Truly, but you could also use, Thank you , Thank you for your time, Thank you for your consideration, or With Consideration,

    It really would depend on the type of letter how I would end it.

  • If you're writing to someone in the U.S., the standard closing for a business letter is "sincerely". If you're writing to a dignitary, it's "respectfully". So although "sincerely" may sound too personal to you, it's really not. It's the norm in business letters.
    Good luck.
