Accumulated Depreciation, Financial Accounting

The office building was bought in January 1, 2011 and was originally planned to be used for 40 years and had no salvage value. It is depreciated on a straight line basis. Now in 2012, the estimated total life remains at 40 years, but the salvage will be $500,000.

The office building is listed at $3,100,000 on the unadjusted trial balance and has accumulated depreciation of $87,500.

I need to prepare the adjusting journal entry to account for accumulated depreciation in 2012. Also, I believe that accumulated depreciation was recorded incorrectly for 2011 so I think I need to adjust for this as well.
