MBO Partners offers six (6) advantages to independent workers to becoming a C corporation including my favorites: limited liability protection and minimal audit risk.

1. Limited Liability Protection
Separating personal and corporate liability is one of the most valid reasons to consider a separate business status.

5. Minimal Audit Risk
From both a personal taxes and corporation taxes standpoint, C corporations are less likely to be audited by the IRS compared to sole proprietorships, LLCs, and S corporations. Of course, you should always make sure you’re doing things by the letter of the law and keeping appropriate records so in the event of an audit, you can prove you are operating compliantly.
