Hello. If you have no special or specific concerns, I suggest using the LLC, as opposed to a Corporation, because the LLC is easier to manage, less paperwork, and if it is a single member LLC is taxed to you the same as a Subchapter S corporation would be. I hope that this is helpful and that you will rate it accordingly.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
