try this:

var today = new Date();
var newDay = new Date();
newDay.setDate(today.getDate()+31);

Open in new window

var today = new Date();
var newDay = new Date();
newDay.setDate(today.getDate()+31);

finalMonth = newDay.getMonth() + 1;
finalDay = newDay.getDate();
finalYear = newDay.getYear();

var result = finalMonth + '/' + finalDay + '/' + finalYear;

Open in new window

I think this would be simpler for the formatting part....

var newDay = new Date();
newDay.setDate(newDay.getDate()+31);

var result =newDay.format("mm/dd/yy");

The getDate method will return a day between 1 and 31 (see http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_obj_date.asp).
