As of December 31, 20X1, Ashley estimates that 1.0% of its gift cards will never be redeemed. As of December 31, 20X2, Ashley has revised its estimate, and now believes 1.5% of all gift cards, including those issued in 20X1, will not be redeemed. As of December 31, 20X3, its estimate remains at 1.5%. Ashley is not required to remit unused gift card amounts to the state.
