Date help, 60 days after of Jan and July

Experts,

I need a formula for 60 days after Jan 15 and July 15.  

ie:  today is 9/25/2014 so the return would show 60 days after July 15 which is Sept 15.  
Once past July 15 then the return would show 60 days after Jan15 which is Mar15.

this formula shows either Jan 15 or July 15.  I think the solution is to modify the below formula to add 60 days.
but I dont understand where to add the days.  

=DATE(YEAR(NOW()),CHOOSE(MONTH(NOW()),IF(DAY(NOW())>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(NOW())>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13),15)
thank you

Well, first of all, 60 days AFTER January 15 can be either
March 16 - if a non-leap year
March 15 - if a leap year.

And 60 days AFTER July 15 is ALWAYS September 13.

To modify your formula to get these dates:
=DATE(YEAR(NOW()),CHOOSE(MONTH(NOW()),IF(DAY(NOW())>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(NOW())>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13),75)

Just added 60 to the final day amount (from 15 to 75)

You may want to understand my code:

=DATE(YEAR(NOW())

Open in new window


This contains the year for the answer:

,CHOOSE(MONTH(NOW()),

Open in new window


This is going to be the month of the answer, and you are telling to computer that it is going to be based on the current month:

IF(DAY(NOW())>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(NOW())>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13)

Open in new window


These are the month of the answer, one value of each month we are currently in. A "13" means January of next year.

,75)

Open in new window


This is the month you are using. This is therefore the 15th day plus another 60 days.

Hope this helps you understand the code.

With addition to my previous suggestion using EOMONTH:

=EOMONTH(TODAY(),IF(AND(DAY(TODAY())<16,OR(MONTH(TODAY())=1,MONTH(TODAY())=7)),-1,IF(MONTH(TODAY())<7,6,12)-MONTH(TODAY())))+15+60

The +15+60 could obviously be changed to +75

Thanks

On the other hand, if you indeed wanted to return these values always (i.e., two MONTHS) after cutoff:
July 15 ---> September 15
January 15 ---> March 15

then the formula would be more like this:
=DATE(YEAR(NOW()),CHOOSE(MONTH(NOW()),IF(DAY(NOW())>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(NOW())>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13)+2,15)

This adds 2 to the chosen month and leaves the day value (15) constant.
