Virtually all states require corporations and LLCs to appoint a registered agent in the state where the company is formed. The registered agent is responsible for receiving important legal and tax documents including: notice of litigation (service of process), franchise tax forms and annual report forms.
The registered agent may be an individual or a company approved by the state to act as agent, located at a street address in the state where the company is formed. The registered agent’s name and address are included on the formation documents. This information is a matter of public record, meaning that anyone has access to it.
