A registered agent is a business or individual who serves as a company’s representative. They are typically tasked with accepting documents on the LLC’s behalf, including official government correspondence. This can include service of process notices, tax information, communication from the Secretary of State, and notices of lawsuits. Registered agents act as a middle-man, as it is their job to see that members of the LLC receive these documents.

- The registered agent may be an individual who is a resident of Idaho
