    Right now Im a sole proprietor. My family and I have to switch insurance companies and I can get a better rate through a group plan if I INC or become a LLC.

    I have no employees. I gross just under 100K.

    Which one would be better for me?

    Talk with your accountant. I incorpoated last year, went S-corp. I was sole prop, no employees. The mistake I made was having a lawyer do the paperwork, not my accountant, big mess. I was switching accountants at the time to and that caused some of the problems.

    Check with your accountant to see what would be best for YOUR company. I just switched from Sole Prop. to LLC taxed as an S-Corp.

    LLC all the way.

    Both have no liability but LLC has far less formal recordkeeping and no annual meetings or stock "stuff".:)

    It all depends what your ultimate plans are for your business. e-mail me if you want. Being an inc. requires you to pay more tax in a sense. Its a long story. e-mail me and I will send you my accountants email address. she will be able to help you.
