Spanish term or phrase: año próximo pasado
Context:
"relación a su escrito de fecha 10 de Dic., 1998, y recibido por esta oficina el 30 de Dic. del año próximo pasado,…"

I can't figure out if this means "this past year" or "the same year".

Your help is appreciated.

the year just gone/past/ended


Explanation:
I agree that it means 1998 in this sentence. I think I would translate it as:

"..with reference to your communication, dated 10th Dec. 1998 and received by this office on 30th Dec. of the year just ended..."
