WISCONSIN REGISTERED AGENT

What is the reason for registered agents in the first place?
When I was a kid, you just herded sheep and paid your taxes to the king. Gradually, economies evolved, new business forms like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various business structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Entities are given stature that is disconnected from the person or persons who form them. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for people to figure out that they could avoid legal actions by personally steering clear of servers of process. So, to tighten up that loophole, most Secretaries of State insist that business entities to select a “registered agent.”
