Section 19-3A-406

Bonds and other obligations.

(a) An amount received as interest, whether determined at a fixed, variable, or floating rate, on a bond or an obligation to pay money to the fiduciary shall be allocated to income.

(b) Except as provided for in subsection (c) and subsection (d), a fiduciary shall allocate to principal any gain or loss realized upon the sale or maturity of any bond or obligation to pay money to the fiduciary, regardless of how such bond or other obligation was acquired.

(c) A fiduciary shall allocate to income the difference between inventory value or cost, and the amount realized upon sale or maturity, if greater, for bonds or other obligations that do not bear interest, regardless of how or when such bond or other obligation was acquired.

(d) For bonds or other obligations that are acquired by a fiduciary subsequent to the time the principal was established and whose cost is greater than their par or maturity value, the fiduciary shall amortize periodically out of income the premium paid, and upon sale or maturity, shall allocate to principal any gain or loss realized thereon.

(e) This section does not apply to a bond or other obligation to which Section 19-3A-409, Section 19-3A-410, Section 19-3A-411, Section 19-3A-412, Section 19-3A-414, or Section 19-3A-415 applies.
