REGISTERED AGENT IN OKLAHOMA
Let’s talk a little bit about registered agent service in Oklahoma.
Why are there registered agents in the first place?
Long ago, you just tended the farm and paid your taxes to the king. Eventually, economies changed, new business forms like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These types of business entities were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Business entities are given status that is disconnected from the person or persons who put them together. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for people to figure out that they could evade legal actions by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to close that loophole, most States require business owners to designate a “registered agent.”
Briefly, who can act as a registered agent?
Your Oklahoma statutory agent needs to be a company or individual who is a legal citizen of Oklahoma. A registered agent must be on hand to receive service of process during standard business hours. Oklahoma registered agents have to furnish a lawful, physical address within Oklahoma.
