Hello,
Select CurrentQuarterSales = SUM(case when Year(Invoice_Date) = YEAR(GetDate()) and Ceiling(month (Invoice_Date)/3) = Ceiling(month (GETDATE())/3) then Total_Amount Else 0 End),
	LastYearSameQuarterSales = SUM(case when Year(Invoice_Date) = YEAR(GetDate()) - 1 and Ceiling(month (Invoice_Date)/3) = Ceiling(month (GETDATE())/3) then Total_Amount Else 0 End)
From Sales
