What is the reason for resident agents in the first place?

When I was a kid, you just fought dragons 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 entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Companies are given stature that is independent from the person or persons who put them together. Sadly, it didn’t take long for people to understand that they could dodge litigation by personally hiding from process servers. So, to close that loophole, most States require business owners to designate a “registered agent.”

Sum it up for me, who can act as a registered agent?

Your Wyoming resident agent needs to be a company or individual who is a legitimate resident of your state. They ought to be on hand to receive legal documents during normal business hours. Wyoming registered agents have to furnish a legal, physical address within the state.
