I see that there are depreciation schedules for everything, including software (3 years) and calculators (3 years).

Are there any official or unofficial guidelines for what type of items need to be depreciated? Is there any kind of dollar amount associated with it? I have some itens like $40 hubs (computer equipment), and $100 pieces of software that I really don't want to have to treat as fixed assets and spread over several years.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.
