Thank you for the better explanation. I think that you want the following: 
The 12 months of data just before the beginning of the next month (all of 
this month all of the way back to the "next" month for the previous year, 
excluding later dates within the current month.

As an example: 
a) Assume we have a table that contains daily records from 2004-01-01 to 
2005-10-18.
b) You want to run a report based on the date 2005-05-25.

You have already said that you did not want to see the dates from 
2004-05-26 to 2005-05025. I think what understand that you want to see is 
from 2004-06-01 to 2005-05-25.

Use Michael's formula:
SET @last_month_yr = LAST_DAY(CURDATE()- INTERVAL 1 MONTH)
                      - INTERVAL 1 YEAR + INTERVAL 1 DAY;

To compute the earliest date and use the target date as the other end. So 
for instance, for the target report date of 2005-05-25, combining 
Michael's formula and your query would look like:

SET @report_target_date = '2005-05-25';
SET @last_month_yr = LAST_DAY(@report_target_date - INTERVAL 1 MONTH)
                      - INTERVAL 1 YEAR + INTERVAL 1 DAY;

SELECT ...
FROM ...
WHERE datefield BETWEEN @last_month_yr AND @report_target_date;

Does this do what you wanted?
