I previously read some posts on a possibility of deducting a computer, if it is used for tracking investments etc. I paid $2400 last year (10/97) for a computer and primarily use it for my investing purposes. Obviously, I did not keep a log of the usage. Iwould like to know if I can deduct this computer. If I could, how can I do it? I am going to use TurboTax. Is there a way to do it using TurboTax? How does the depreciation method works? Pleeeze Help !!
