Can I use a P.O. box as the primary address for my LLC?

Can I use a P.O. box as the primary address for my LLC? I am looking to incorporate in Pennsylvania.

Answer

Most states require a street address (not a PO Box) for the LLC's registered agent / resident agent.

For all other purposes, a PO Box as your LLC's business address is usually acceptable.

why not have owners registered?

I think there is a lot of fraud with real estate and builders! Why can't I know who the owners are?

In California you cannot have a business address as a PO box. I would like to know the reason. If it is because a PO box cannot receive mail from other carriers than USPS, then a PMB should work, such as PostalPlus. Isn't the registered agent supposed to accept any served process? I want to know how to protect my privacy for a home-based business when forming an LLC.
