Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney here to assist you.
An LLC is the best option as it protects you from any liability for work you've performed under the name of the company. The LLC also provides tax benefits that a sole proprietorship will not.
I'm not a CPA, so I can't swear that the taxation will be exactly the same. However, both a sole proprietorship and an LLC do use pass-through taxation.
The biggest difference in the two is protection from liability. A sole proprietorship provides no protection while an LLC provides absolute individual immunity from actions performed by the LLC except from criminal actions.
I would definitely recommend an LLC over any other type of legal business entity. It offers the most protection whether you're a single member entity or a billion dollar operation.
