Gift Date merge field in Membership Form Acknowledgement Email is in UTC shows next day (UTC time)

The Gift Date merge field is included in your Membership Form's Acknowledgement Email. When a member receives their acknowledgement email, the gift date is showing the next day, unexpectedly.
For example, the member signs up for their membership on January 1st, but the date in the acknowledgement email shows January 2nd.
This is resolved in the latest version of NetCommunity. If this behavior is persistent, please confirm you’re on the latest version of NetCommunity.

Steps to Duplicate

Verify the acknowledgement email contains the Gift Date merge field under:
1. Site Explorer>Parts
2. Edit the membership form part
3. Click the Acknowledgement Email button
4. Ensure Gift Date is added and Save
Fill out the membership after 7PM EST (or change clock to after 7PM EST) to submit a membership transaction, ensuring your email address is included so you may receive the acknowledgement email.
Note: after receiving the acknowledgement email, the gift date shows tomorrow, which I suspect is pulling from UTC time.
