Forming a limited liability company protects your personal assets by keeping them separate from your business assets, and it provides the greatest flexibility available when it comes to taxation and business structure.

S corporations offer specialized taxation that limits the company's liability, and are only available to US citizens. When you form an S corporation, the company itself isn't taxed. Instead, profits and losses are tallied and taxed after being distributed to shareholders.
For this reason, an S corporation is most often chosen by companies incorporating with multiple shareholders, and is considered a good alternative to legal business partnership because it provides tax benefits without the overhead and complexity.
In C corporations profits are taxed at the business level before being distributed to shareholders, but the main feature of this type of incorporation is that it offers certain advantages that some companies require.
Specifically, a C corporation the only option available for US companies choosing to work with foreign investors. Forming a C corporation also allows you more flexibility with shareholder involvement by making it possible to create multiple classes of stock.
