Among some of the more prominent examples are a sole proprietorship, where an individual works on his/her own and all income is reported as personal income; a partnership, where two or more people create an organization partially distinct from each and where each partner has his/her own role; and a corporation, which is separate and distinct from its owners and is often a legally recognized person.
