No Commas Here

If you are using just a month and a year, you do not need a comma between them.

Bad Example:

April, 2012

Corrected Example:

April 2012

If you include a specific date after the month, then you do need a comma.


April 12, 2012

Here are a few other times you do not need a comma:
