A Florida general bill of sale is a document that acts as proof of purchase for a private transaction between a buyer and a seller. The form requires that both parties provide their contact information, signatures, a description of the item, the date of the sale, and the amount paid. Individuals can use the bill of sale to document items sold through garage sales or online and printed classifieds. Due to the lack of regulations regarding private sales, individuals are recommended to document private transactions with signed receipts to avoid disputes and protect themselves from liability.
