What is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent is a third-party individual or business entity that acts as the link and point of contact between an LLC and the state it's registered in.

The registered agent receives tax forms and legal documents, government correspondences, and notices of a lawsuit, for example, on behalf of the LLC.
