What is a registered agent?

The registered agent is responsible for receiving important legal and tax documents on behalf of incorporated companies, such as the following:

  • Service of Process—sometimes called Notice of Litigation—which initiates a lawsuit
  • Important state mail, such as annual reports or statements
  • Tax documents sent by the state’s department of taxation
  • The registered agent must have a physical address (not a post office box) in the state of incorporation or qualification and must be available at that address during normal business hours.
