Most states require a legal entity (ie LLC, LP, corporation, etc.) to have an identified individual (registered agent or resident agent) as its legal representative for receipt of formal documents such as notice of a lawsuit, tax documents and notifications from other government agencies.

If you are a resident of Massachusetts, have a street address in Massachusetts, are available from 9am-5pm, and are over the age of 18 you have the option to serve as your own resident agent, or may appoint a qualifying friend or family member.
