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.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
