Registered Agent - Posted by HLC

Usually your Secretary of State’s website will define the register agent for you. Typically it is designed to be someone with a phyical address (no P.O. Box) who can be served with legal papers during working hours (in the event of civil suit etc.).

So your agent may well be you, especially in single member companies, unless you care to pay someone such as an attorney for this service.

Check the state website and see if that helps clarify it for you as I am not an attorney (an don’t wish to violate the editorial policy here) but merely wish to point you toward a possible solution.

Best Wishes,

In Texas, articles of incorporation must include a registered agent. I am unclear on one thing: can this agent also be a board member or president of the company being incorporated, i.e. myself?
