I scheduled a SQL Agent job to run once in 12 months and surprisingly the job is executing monthly.  Here is my job schedule definition:  
Occurs every 12 month(s) on day 3 of that month at 3:00:00 AM. Schedule will be used starting on 1/3/2012.

It is the same issue as the below connect post (which is for SQL 2008 R2) but I am using SQL 2012 CU4.  Has this fix not yet been made in SQL 2012?

I am still able to re-produce this issue. I am on SQL 2012 Standard CU5 now and still see the issue. Steps to re-produce:
- Create a new job
- Create the job schedule as "Occurs every 12 month(s) on day 3 of that month at 3:00:00 AM. Schedule will be used starting on 1/3/2013."
- Save the job
- Run the following query:
USE msdb
FROM sysjobschedules A
    inner join sysjobs b ON A.job_id = B.job_id
where B.name = 'TestJobName'

- See the next_run_date column value: The values is: "20130603". Which is incorrect, it should be "20140103".
