Calculating current Quarter and use filter in DAX

So i have this DAX here and I want to be selecting current Quarter automatically instead of manually changing it every time what should I change?

 

Target = Calculate(SUM('TABLE'[Budget])/12, FILTER( TABLE,'TABLE'[Year]=2018 && 'TABLE'[Quarter]="Q3"))
 
Can I also do this with year too? in a different query.
Or use a function to calcualte QTD?

@CharlesMS Try:

Target = 
  VAR __Quarter = "Q" & QUARTER(TODAY())
  VAR __Result = 
Calculate(SUM('TABLE'[Budget])/12, FILTER( TABLE,'TABLE'[Year]=2018 && 'TABLE'[Quarter]=__Quarter))
RETURN
  __Result

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

@Greg_Deckler 

I get the following error when I use this now:

MdxScript(Model) (1427,67) Calculation error in measure 'Table'[Measure]: DAX comparison operations do not support comparing value of type Text with value of type integer.

Consider using the Value or format function to convert one of the values.

 

 

 

So my measure is :

Measure =
VAR __Current_year = Year(Now())
VAR __Quarter = "Q" & QUARTER(TODAY())
  VAR __Result =
Calculate(SUM('Table'[cost]), FILTER( 'Table','Table'[Year] = __Current_year && 'Table'[Quarter]=__Quarter && 'Table'[activity_type]= "X"))
RETURN
  __Result

 

The column Year is dax like this:

Year = FORMAT('Table'[date],"yyyy")
 
The column Quarter is dax like this:
Quarter = FORMAT('Table'[date],"q")
 
and the date is a measure i have in my Table like this format:
25/12/2022
 
But apparently my Quarter and Year columns are formatted as Text and Can't compare them with numbers , how do I change them ?
When I view the table I can't see those columns
