facts you should know about a registered agent in Massachusetts:
agent," "statutory agent" and "resident agent"
are three names for the same thing: an agent authorized by a company
to receive documents and notices. (Since the three terms all refer
to a Resident

corporate law (2) a foreign corporation authorized to transact business
in Massachusetts or (3) an adult individual who resides in Massachusetts.

in Massachusetts or qualified to do business in Massachusetts, to
act as a registered agent in Massachusetts.

street address rather than a post office box and that the registered
agent must sign a consent to be registered agent and file it
with the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth.
