When bond matures how should you categorize transaction downloaded from broker
I am using Win10 Quicken Premier R32.10. When a bond matures, it is reported as a deposit by my broker and broker calls it a redemption. So, as a deposit it reports as Income and is categorized as Other Inc then it shows up as income in my Spending tab, as if it's Income I have made. It seems as if it needs to be recorded as category _RlzdGain. In fact some dividends that come in as Deposits from this broker also get categorized as Income in my Spending tab. Now the _RlzdGain does not seem quite right either for the bond, since it's not the whole bond value that is a gain, just the difference from what the bond was purchased should be _RlzdGain. How should one deal with Bond redemptions?
