  • The name of the registered agent
  • A statement that you resign as the entity's agent for service of process
  • The entity's name and address where you will promptly supply notice of resignation

Sometimes a business will designate a registered agent without the agent's knowledge or approval. If you wish to reject such an appointment, submit a statement of resignation to the SOS.
