I am entering payments for Internet services as a business deduction. Next year, the payment will be folded into my Homeowner's association bill. Can I still deduct this?

My concern is that I won't have a receipt showing I pay for this service, since it is part of the HOA, but the HOA was increased that amount so I am still paying for it, just not directly to the cable company. In case of audit, I cannot show a receipt for that amount. Would that be OK?

My concern is that I won't have a receipt in that amount to show an auditor. The HOA was increased by that amount to cover the Internet service, but I will be paying the HOA and not the cable company and the amounts won't match.
