End If

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use DateSerial() like this:
Private Sub btnAugust_Click()
    Dim August As Variant
    August = DateSerial(Year(Date), 8, 1)
    If Date < August Then
        Debug.Print "Today is less than " & August
    Else
        Debug.Print "Today is greater than " & August
    End If
End Sub
