I use my cell phone and internet service for my consulting job but it is also personal use at home. How do I know how much of the cost I can deduct?

You can deduct a dedicated phone line or internet for business in full.

Otherwise, make your best conservative estimate on your cell phone and internet, but do keep in mind that in the event of an audit, you may be asked for written records to distinguish between personal and business use for the internet and cell phone
