Corporations

In a small corporation where most earnings are paid to the shareholders as salary, operating as a corporation may actually place you in a lower tax bracket than partnership-like “pass through” taxation would. Also, if your long-term goals include going public, operating as a corporation from the start may decrease your expenses during the IPO process.

Not all corporations have the typical corporate structure. Nonprofit ventures may incorporate as nonprofit corporations. S-corporations allow for “pass-through” taxation (tax to shareholders only, not to the company) for those companies that foresee remaining small and issuing only one type of stock.
