Totally incorrect. The corp pays the tax. Dividend is payed out after tax. They amount to the almost the same thing in the end if you are the only employee.
OP: If you are making money, incorporate. If you will lose money, sole prop since you can write off against personal income. This is only good for a couple years though.
