In general, if you use your phone & Internet services exclusively for business purposes, then you can take 100% of the expense as deduction on Schedule C of Form 1040. However, if the expense is partly business and partly personal purposes then you can deduct your phone & internet bills in proportion to its business use. For example, if someone uses their phone 50% of the time for business use (this includes calls, messaging etc.) then they can deduct 50% of the overall phone bills. In the FlyFin app, you can mark all such phone and internet expenses as deductions and later on we will apply a % based on business usage at the time of tax filing.
