 I need to get Month and Year based on the following conditions.
if today is less than 20th of this month
then return deduct 5 months and return month as int and year (i.e 11, 2004)
else return deduct 4 months and return month as int and year (i.e 12, 2004)
and so on so forth.

check out the DateTime Class, you can do anything with this, pay particular attention to the .AddMonths(), .Day(), .Month() and .Year() methods.  You should be able to do what you want with those methods.  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfSystemDateTimeClassTopic.asp

Dim today as DateTime = DateTime.Now
Dim return_day as DateTime

If today.day < 20 then
  return_day = today.AddMonths(-5)
  return return_day.Month.tostring & ", " & return_day.Year.tostring()
End If
