New repeat option: every year on the [interval] [day] of [month] (e.g. 'every year on the last monday of may')

bsabol94 says:
Occasionally I have need to post an annual task on a certain day of the month. For instance, I need to change a sign at a church every Memorial Day and Labor Day. I would like to be able to have a task that repeats "every year on the Last Monday of May". and "Every year on the 1st Monday of September"

Is this possible? If not could it be added in the future?

bsabol94, sorry this isn't currently possible. We're continuing to add support for different repeating options, so it may be something we can support in the future.

Found this suggestion via Google. My two cents:

Can this be done by entering something like "every [month name] on the [interval] [day]"?

(So "Set table for Thanksgiving dinner" could be entered: "every November on the 4th Thursday")

+1! I am slowly moving task-type items from Google Calendar to RTM and this is something that could be done there using a method like what @jipgirl mentioned.. more like repeating every 12 months rather than yearly (same, but different :).

I don't understand how a task like this is not in demand. There are lots of tasks that you want to repeat yearly at a specific time of the year.
e.g. go Christmas shopping repeat every Dec 1
e.g. winterize lawn mower repeat every Nov 1
