A corporation and LLC are two different business structures that you can choose. Each is treated differently for tax purposes, however: a corporation is taxed at the business level and the individual level. An LLC, however, has what is called "pass-through" taxation, meaning that just the individual is taxed. They are also different in terms of their management and flexibility: an LLC is more flexible to different management organizations, meaning you can set it up more how you would like, instead of the somewhat strict structure of a corporation.
