When I write the function now() in "Default", I get the following error: record value is required.

@luis82 

Are you using a SharePoint Choices field to display the options for Year?

If yes, put this code in the Default field

{Value: Year(Today())}

 

If no, I will need details on the data you used to populate the Items property of the control
