Presented below are three independent situations.
Marquart Stamp Company records stamp service revenue and provides for the cost of redemptions in the year stamps are sold to licensees. Marquart's past experience indicates that only 80% of the stamps sold to licensees will be redeemed. Marquart's liability for stamp redemptions was $13,000,000 at December 31, 2009. Additional information for 2010 is as follows.
Stamp service revenue from stamps sold to licensees $9,500,000
Cost of redemptions (stamps sold prior to 1/1/10) 6,000,000
If all the stamps sold in 2010 were presented for redemption in 2011, the redemption cost would be $5,200,000. What amount should Marquart report as a liability for stamp redemptions at December 31, 2010?
