The term does not include deferred compensation that is subject to section 557A-409, natural resources that are subject to section 557A-411, timber that is subject to section 557A-412, an activity that is subject to section 557A-414, an asset subject to section 557A-415, or any asset for which the trustee establishes a reserve for depreciation under section 557A-503.
(b) A trustee shall allocate to income ten per cent of the receipts from a liquidating asset and the balance to principal. [L 2000, c 191, pt of §1]
