A Texas registered agent is a person or entity who is a legal resident of Texas that maintains a physical address in Texas and is open during normal business hours designated to accept service of process, legal documents, and any State or federal documents on behalf of the corporation. P.O. Boxes are not acceptable. Texas requires a Texas registered agent to be on file at all times.
We provide statutory/service agent representation for insurance agents, insurance agencies, and TABC liquor license requirements.
Failure to appoint or maintain a Texas registered agent may result in the corporation to fall out of “Active” status with the State of Texas. This can cause an involuntary termination of the corporation or the revocation of a foreign filing entity’s registration to transact business in Texas. This will forfeit your right to do business in Texas as a Texas corporation. This will lead to monetary penalties being assessed to reinstate your company back to “Active” status.
Can I act as my own Texas registered agent?
Yes but there are some good reasons why that’s a bad idea. You don’t have the flexibility to close your office or have flexible office hours. You must always be open to accept service of process during normal business hours. Legal papers that get served by a Constable or Sheriff will be delivered to your address potentially in front of your friends, family, clients, neighbors, or even vendors. You will be exposing your name and address publicly on the Texas corporations database listing. Lastly, it will be your soul responsibility to remember when your annual filing is due. There is a $50 late file penalty for missing the filing deadline.
