Maryland Registered Agent Requirements

Maryland Senate Bill 82 was signed by the governor April 10, 2018, with an effective date of October 1, 2018. The bill requires corporations, limited liability partnerships, limited partnerships, and statutory trusts to have a resident agent, rather than at least one resident agent.  The bill also alters the effective date of a resident agent’s resignation for these entities, as well as for limited liability companies and foreign corporations, to reflect these entities having only one resident agent.
