If you mean when does the product stop being supported - go here http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=2855 to work out the date, depending on your current version.
As you can see SQL 2005 is out of mainstream support (ended 12 Apr 2011), but is still under Extended support until 2016
Edit following on from OP clarification
Once you have purchased a licence, there is no need to renew, and there is no expiration.
