Do I include my internet/cable expense as part of the entire home utilities or home office only? I teach English online.

I would estimate that 70% of my internet use is work related. I also get a higher speed internet because I am using video.

You may not want to enter the internet as a home office expense. This can be included as a communication expense on your business. Be sure that you do not deduct 100% of the expense, but rather the business usage percentage.
