hi there fellow Fools, heres a tax question.5 years ago when I entered medical school the school required the purchase of a particular home computer to the tune of $3100. a little more than a year ago I entered residency (paid job in medicine)and continued to use the computer for medical software use ect. I'm wondering if on selling the computer for 100 bucks you could count the remaining 3000 dollars as a capital loss on form 4797 since it was a required purchase for my "trade" (page 17 of IRS publication 544. I imagine this situation also applies to other folks out there (substitute medical school for the graduate or vocational program of your choice) thanks in advance for your advice.Ethan
