This should give you what you need.

Dim current_targetDate As DateTime = DateTime.Today
Dim previous_targetDate As DateTime = DateTime.Today.AddYears(-1)

you need to clarify whether you want the date on the last Wednesday in December 2013, or do you want the Day on which 12/31/2013 fell.  Those are not the same.

12/31/2013 was a Tuesday .
Today in 2013 was 12/25/2013

If you only care about the date, there are date math function where you can use date and subtract a year.
