Conditional Where clauses in MySQL Select Statement

Hopefully this is an easy question. I have a MySQL database which houses sales data for my company. I need to generate a report for total sales for an accounts fiscal year which is July 1st - June 30th... The database breaks hold monthly totals SalesBal1 for Jan, SalesBal2 for Feb and so forth. But the data has to be fitered by the fiscal year in the database which is a calendar year.
     In the query below I can generate a report for July - Dec of 08, but I do not know how to then generate the Jan - June sales in 09... I know I could run a seperate query but I figure there is a simple way to combine this in one... Please let me know if my explanation is difficult to understand..
SELECT
  SUM(T.SalesBal7) As July_2008,
  SUM(T.SalesBal8) As Aug_2008,
  SUM(T.SalesBal9) As Sept_2008,
  SUM(T.SalesBal10) As Oct_2008,
  SUM(T.SalesBal11) As Nov_2008,
  SUM(T.SalesBal12) As Dec_2008
FROM arcpsale T
  Left Outer Join arcusts T1 On T.CustID = T1.CustID
WHERE T1.CustAcct ='MAINE130^'
  and T.FiscalYear =2008

One possibility is:
SELECT
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal7 else 0 END) As July_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal8 else 0 END) As Aug_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal9 else 0 END) As Sept_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal10 else 0 END) As Oct_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal11 else 0 END) As Nov_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2008 then T.SalesBal12 else 0 END) As Dec_2008,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal1 else 0 END) As Jan_2009,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal2 else 0 END) As Feb_2009,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal3 else 0 END) As Mar_2009,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal4 else 0 END) As Apr_2009,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal5 else 0 END) As May_2009,
  SUM(CASE WHEN T.FiscalYear = 2009 then T.SalesBal6 else 0 END) As Jun_2009
 
FROM arcpsale T
  Left Outer Join arcusts T1 On T.CustID = T1.CustID
WHERE T1.CustAcct ='MAINE130^'
  and T.FiscalYear BETWEEN 2008 AND 2009

Thank you for the responce. I'm now getting a syntext error "Right parenthese expected after aggregate SUM function argument, instead found 'WHEN' in source column expression.

Is there a syntext error?
