ABOUT YOUR REGISTERED AGENT IN NEW MEXICO
Let me tell you about getting a registered agent in New Mexico.
Why are there registered agents in the first place?
When I was a kid, you just fought dragons and paid your taxes to the king. Gradually, economies changed, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These types of company structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are furnished status that is separated from the people who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for owners to figure out that they could avoid business lawsuits by personally steering clear of process servers. So, to close that loophole, most States require business owners to select a “registered agent.”
What are the requirements or restrictions I should know about my registered agent?
There are only a few restrictions relating to who can act as your registered agent here in New Mexico. In particular, the entity or person acting as your registered agent needs to be located and available at an official street address within New Mexico during regular business hours. They will be responsible to accept all legal and tax-related documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., for you.
