About Your Indiana Registered Agent
Let me tell you about registered agent service in Indiana.
Why are there resident agents in the first place?
Long ago, you just tended the farm and paid your taxes to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies changed, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These various business structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are afforded status that is disconnected from the people who put them together. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for owners to work out that they could evade business lawsuits by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to get rid of that loophole, most Secretaries of State insist that companies to appoint a “registered agent.”
