How Does a Corporation Change a Registered Agent in Texas?
Dissolution is the termination of a corporation, either voluntarily by resolution, paying debts, distributing assets and filing dissolution documents with the Secretary of State; or by state suspension for not paying corporate taxes or some other action of the government. The primary steps involved when dissolving a company include corporate action to approve the dissolution; filing articles of dissolution with the state; filing all necessary federal, state, and local tax forms; statutory notification to creditors; settling creditors' claims and distribution of remaining business assets.
