I am having trouble figuring out how to compare the datetime field EventDate and make sure my query only returns records from the current year.   So far I have the following but it's only getting greater than or equal to today:

EventDate >= GETDATE()

and EventDate looks like '2009-04-25 00:00:00.000'

Can someone help me here?  The year of the EventDate should = this year.

use this
EventDate >= dateadd(YEAR, datediff(YEAR, 0, getdate()), 0)

If there is any possibility that EventDate can hold future data:

WHERE EventDate >= DATEADD(year, DATEDIFF(year, '2000-01-01', GETDATE()), '2000-01-01') AND
    EventDate < DATEADD(year, DATEDIFF(year, '2000-01-01', GETDATE()) + 1, '2000-01-01')

Or you could just use YEAR(EventDate), but I would not use getdate() in your where clause necessarily.

You could create a variable @ThisYear int and SET @ThisYear = YEAR(GETDATE())
then WHERE Year(EventDate) = @ThisYear
