Pass through taxation is nice, but what if the company grows and the benefits of a corporation outweigh the benefits of being able to pass-through the p/l. LLC's can be handy for smaller groups, but there are much more restrictive rules in most states - foreign ownership, stock classes, ways you can take investment, taxes.
It's a complex question, and every situation is different. I still maintain that it's a bad idea for anyone to make the LLC or CORP decision without the benefit of a good accountant. After all, you'll need an accountant at the end of the year anyways so why not start things off on the right foot.
I've seen too many people make a quick decision based on a some online llc vs. corp chart, and then have to create a successor entity 2 years later for tax purposes. California is a particularly difficult state, because the feese are huge and the tax board is extremely aggressive. It costs $800/year just to be here, even as a s-corp with no revenue.
What does your CPA say?
If you don't have a CPA who handles corporate taxation and personal returns, you should not make this decision on until you have one.
