You're not personally on the hook for business liabilities

Taxed once or twice; you're free to choose which can help minimize taxes

Drawbacks to consider

Ongoing filings and fees to stay in compliance

LLCs can't go public

Not recognized globally; you may be taxed as a corporation in other countries
