You should not decide upon the business form you should have without knowing what the tax implicaions are, as well other considerations such as decision making requirements, future expansion, and reporting requirements, and the ultimate dissolution of the buiness if it becomes necessary. For example, there will be tax implications choosing one type of corporation over another, not just how many companies you have. So, as any prudent person creating a business, you should spend the money necessary to consult with both an accountant regarding tax implications of various forms and a business attorney. Sometimes the latter will know the answers to the tax issues, but not necessarily all of them. Consider using professionals to assist you part of the research and paying for professional services is necessary in starting and operating a successful business.
