As a person confronts the vicissitudes of the business world questions may arise as to the proper structure for your business and/or your family needs. Should we operate as an individual proprietorship or should we incorporate? If incorporation is found to be appropriate, should it be a straight corporation, a pass-through corporation, or a limited liability corporation?
