E13-15B (Premiums) Presented below are three independent situations.

1. X&Z Stamp Company records stamp service revenue and provides for the cost of redemptions in the year stamps are sold to licensees. X&Z’s past experience indicates that only 60% of the stamps sold to licensees will be redeemed. X&Z’s liability for stamp redemptions was $6,000,000 at December 31, 2013. Additional information for 2014 is as follows.

Stamp service revenue from stamps

           sold to licensees                    $15,500,000

Cost of redemptions (stamps

           sold prior to 1/1/14)                    3,000,000

If all the stamps sold in 2014 were presented for redemption in 2015, the redemption cost would be $9,800,000. What amount should X&Z report as a liability for stamp redemptions at December 31, 2014?
