Current Year Depreciation not included in Gain/Loss when retiring asset

I am trying to dispose of an asset (ABAVN) by scrapping.  Am I using the wrong T-code?

When I simulate the disposal transaction, I notice that only prior years' depreciation is being picked up/reversed from the Acc Depr.  Why?  Where is the current year's depreciation being posted/reversed?

(I am rounding)

Cost of Asset = 136,650

PY Acc Depr = 95,484

CY Depr = 15,436

Net Book Value as of 9/30/2015 = 25,730

SAP Accounting (Simulation of disposal):

     CR to (BS) Asset -Machine     136,650

     DR to Acc Depr                         95,484

     DR to Gain(Loss)                        41,165

Shouldn't the Acc Depr be the 95,484 + 15,436 = 110,920? And the gain loss be $25,730 since I am disposing of the asset in Sept 30, 2015. 

Thanks,
