I want to incorporate my small business as a sole-propriatorship. When should I do this from a tax point of view?

Sorry, you seem to be confused. You cannot incorporate a sole proprietorship. They are completely contradictory.

A sole proprietorship is a registered business name used by an individual.

A corporation is a separate legal entity and cannot be legally tied to an individual.
