Please assist with this query. I am trying to create two additional fields in my dataset. One is for State Fiscal Year (State_FY) and one for Federal Fiscal Year (Fed_FY).  I'm not getting the results I expected.  How can I modify the query to assign the correct state fy and fed fy?
State FY runs 9/1 to 8/31 and Fed FY runs 10/1 - 9/30

In your case statements, you are using the MONTH and YEAR functions.  Those functions expect a date parameter and you are passing in a integer.  Since the SERVICE_MONTH column already is an integer, you don't need to get the MONTH of it.  Currently you are doing this MONTH(11) and 11 as a date is actually "1900-01-12 00:00:00.000".  My example code will show this better.

/* Run this to show why you aren't getting the results that you want. */
select month(11)
select year(2005)

/* You need to use the date column */
select month('11/1/2005 12:00:00 AM')
select year('11/1/2005 12:00:00 AM')

/* The real date value of 11 and 2005.  The number of days from 1/1/1900 */
select cast(11 as datetime)
select cast(2005 as datetime)
