I incorporated myself a number of years ago for a specific reason: I had a
certain tax problem that was best handled by being incorporated. That was my
sole reason at the time for incorporating. However, I have since had reason to
be glad that I am incorporated, despite the extra burdens of paper work and
taxes. For one thing, as a corporation, you can be most generous with fringe
benefits of many kinds, and there are tax advantages in that. And there is the
protection from liability, too, of course, which is not bullet-proof, but is a
comfort, nevertheless. - Herm
