More simplified approach:
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Dim dt = New DateTime(Now.Year, Now.Month, 1).AddMonths(1)
		Console.WriteLine(dt.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy"))
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Hi VBdotnet2005;

This should give you what you need.

Dim MyDate As Date = DateTime.Today
Dim DaysInMonth As Integer = DateTime.DaysInMonth(MyDate.Year, MyDate.Month)
Dim MonthStartDate As String = New DateTime(MyDate.Year, MyDate.Month, DaysInMonth).AddDays(1)
