I need a formula to return a 1 if the date (lets say  A1) was the last day of the month or a 0 if it was not. I have a long list of dates and I just need to pull out the month end dates from each range.

Use this formula:

=IF(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,0)=A1,1,0)

If A1 is the last day of the month then the next day will be the 1st, so you can just test that, i.e.

=IF(DAY(A1+1)=1,1,0)
