  • Use Date.prototype.getFullYear(), Date.prototype.getMonth() to get the current year and month from the given date.

const lastDateOfMonth = (date = new Date()) => {
  let d = new Date(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth() + 1, 0);
  return d.toISOString().split('T')[0];
};
lastDateOfMonth(new Date('2015-08-11')); // '2015-08-30'
