SQL query to include date range of last 6 months but starting on the 1st.

I am using PBI Import from SQL Server Database to pull data for the last six months but want the start date to always be the 1st: of the month through today.  This is what I have right now:

Task.CreatedDate >=DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(m,0,DATEADD(m,-6,GETDATE())),0)

 

I did not want a partial month except for the current so for example, if I were to refresh the query today and anytime the rest of the month  I would want to include April 1st through current day.  Then in November the query would return May 1st through the current day.

Looking for help to complete the SQL Condition if possible.

Thank you in advance

Best bet would be to simply use the function Start of Month

Pass it the date you wish, and it will return the 1st.
