Access 2010 query

This currently works and is close but not exactly what I need.  I need a list of people who's membership expires at the end of the current year

SELECT Table1.First, Table1.Last, IIf(Right([Table1]![ALU Life],2)<"14","Yes","No") AS Expires, Table1.[ALU Life]
FROM Table1
WHERE (((IIf(Right([Table1]![ALU Life],2)<"14","Yes","No"))<>"No") AND ((Table1.[ALU Life])<>"Y" And (Table1.[ALU Life])<>"N") AND ((Table1.[Dues '13])<>0))
ORDER BY Right([Table1]![ALU Life],Len([Table1]![ALU Life])-2), Table1.[ALU Life];

Because the year (14 above) is hard coded I've been trying to get this to work and keep getting an error....

What I want to do is change IIf(Right([Table1]![ALU Life],2)<"14","Yes","No") AS Expires such that it checks for the current year+1.  In the example above that is the check for <14(for 2014).

I've tried to use Year(Now()) +1 but that is an int and ALU Life is a string and errors.  I've tried to convert the string to an int and compare and I can't get it to work.  I've tried to go the other way and convert Year(Now()) +1 to a string and had no success with that either.

For whatever can be done I need to compare only the right most digits of the year(14 in 2014) like I did with ALU Life above.

Any suggestions?

try this.
SELECT Table1.First, Table1.Last, IIf(Right([Table1]![ALU Life],2)<Format(now(), "yy")+1,"Yes","No") AS Expires, Table1.[ALU Life]
FROM Table1
WHERE (((IIf(Right([Table1]![ALU Life],2)<Format(now(), "yy")+1,"Yes","No"))<>"No") AND ((Table1.[ALU Life])<>"Y" And (Table1.[ALU Life])<>"N") AND ((Table1.[Dues '13'])<>0))
ORDER BY Right([Table1]![ALU Life],Len([Table1]![ALU Life])-2), Table1.[ALU Life];
