Calculated the Date in C#

The system takes the current day you apply or check rates and adds the value in the Days to Close editor (30 days) to come up with an estimated closing date. From there, we figure out how many days are left in the month. If the estimated closing date falls on a Friday or the weekend, we moved the estimated closing date to the following Monday.
 
Using the application date or check rates date of 2/19/14, this means for your example, the average days to close is 30 which would put the closing date at March 20th. With a closing date of March 20th, the remaining days in the month would equal eight.

----Following is the code I had in C# but it is not calculating the Days Left In Month ----
---- It is calculating how many days left in a month ---

private state int retrieveInterestDays()
{
     var today = DateTime.Now;
     var day = today.Day;
     var daysinmonth = DateTime.DaysInMonth(today.Year, today.Month);

     return daysinmonth - day + 1;
}

First of all, since you know that you are working with dates, do not create a var variable, create a DateTime. The compiler will be able to perform a better validation on your code, and you will gain a bit or performance.

Second, do not use DateTime.Now when you do not need the time. This can lead to problems later. Use DateTime.Today instead.

Thirdly, once you have a date, you can know which day of the week it falls with the DayOfWeek property, going from Monday (1) to Sunday(7).

Here is how I would perform you routine:

                  DateTime interestDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(30);
                  while (interestDate.DayOfWeek>DayOfWeek.Thursday)
                  {
                        interestDate.AddDays(1);
                  }
