Hi Experts,

This will work assuming the date information is entered correctly, you may need to extend to allow for more variance in the date input.

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
  $('a').click(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    var dt = new Date($('#current-date').val());
    var nw = new Date();
    nw.getDate();
    if (dt.getYear() == nw.getYear()) {
      $('#result').html('Date is the same as this year');
    }
    else {
      $('#result').html('Date is NOT the same as this year');
    }
  });
});
</script>
<style type="text/css">
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div><a href="#">Click to Test</a></div>
Input here <input type="text" id="current-date" />
<div id="result">
</div>
</body>
</html>
