A separate PIR is to be filed for each corporation, LLC, limited partnership, professional association and financial institution that files a separate franchise tax report or that is part of a combined group (unless the corporation, LLC, limited partnership, professional association or financial institution is not organized in Texas and does not have physical presence in Texas).

Changes to the registered agent or registered office must be filed directly with the Secretary of State, and cannot be made on this form. The changes can be made online or on forms downloaded from their website at: https://www.sos.state.tx.us/corp/forms_option.shtml
