Can I take depreciation on my computer and cell phone that I used for business purposes?

To claim depreciation of any kind on a computer or cell phone, they must be a required condition of your job. This means that you cannot properly perform your job without the computer or cell phone.

Furthermore, your computer or cell phone must satisfy a business condition of your employer.

The IRS requires proof that you need your own computer to perform your job because your employer does not provide one, or because the computer provided by your employer is not sufficient for your job.
