2.  An asset becomes subject to a trust at the first occurrence of one of the following events:

a.  On the date it is transferred to the trust in the case of an asset that is transferred to a trust during the transferor’s life.

b.  On the date of a testator’s death in the case of an asset that becomes subject to a trust by reason of a will, even if there is an intervening period of administration of the testator’s estate.

c.  On the date of an individual’s death in the case of an asset that is transferred to a fiduciary by a third party because of the individual’s death.

3.  An asset becomes subject to a successive income interest on the day after the preceding income interest ends, as determined under subsection 4, even if there is an intervening period of administration to wind up the preceding income interest.

4.  An income interest ends on the day before an income beneficiary dies or another terminating event occurs. For purposes of this chapter, an income interest also ends on the last day of a period during which there is no beneficiary to whom a trustee may distribute income.
