you could use datediff to calculate the number of days between 1/1/2007 and the supplied date.
If not 2007 then take the year part of the supplied date and convert that to 1/1/yyyy
then use this to calculate

SELECT DATEPART(y, GETDATE()) AS 'Day of the Year'

SELECT DATEPART(y, '2007-12-02') AS 'Day of the Year'
