I am citing a newspaper article in MLA format. How do I cite the date- just the year?

MLA format requires you to include the month, day and year, in this order: day month year.

Important: Abbreviate all months with five or more letters 

Here is an example:

Hallett, Vicky. "Prancercise, a Celebration of Self-Expression." The Washington Post, 18 Sept. 2013, p. 11. EbscoHost, ue&db=edsgov&AN=edsgcl.343280158&site=eds-live&scope=site.
