2010 Code of Virginia
Chapter 15.1 - Uniform Principal and Income Act (55-277.1 thru 55-277.33)
55-277.17 - Insubstantial allocations not required.

§ 55-277.17. Insubstantial allocations not required.

If a trustee determines that an allocation between principal and income required by §§ 55-277.18, 55-277.19, 55-277.20, 55-277.21, or § 55-277.24 is insubstantial, the trustee may allocate the entire amount to principal unless one of the circumstances described in subsection C of § 55-277.4 applies to the allocation. This power may be exercised by a cotrustee in the circumstances described in subsection D of § 55-277.4 and may be released for the reasons and in the manner described in subsection E of § 55-277.4. An allocation is presumed to be insubstantial if:

1. The amount of the allocation would increase or decrease net income in an accounting period, as determined before the allocation, by less than ten percent; or

2. The value of the asset producing the receipt for which the allocation would be made is less than ten percent of the total value of the trust's assets at the beginning of the accounting period.
