I'm trying to add a recurring notification to any of these calendars (Outlook, Google or iOS) that follows the rule:

Is triggered in the first Tuesday or first Thursday after 20th of each month.

That's mostly because I always forget to pay some of my monthly taxes. :D

Any ideas on how to do this?

Well, for Google calendar is super easy. However, I'm not very familiar with ios.

When creating an event, double click on it to go to the more advanced settings. Under the time boxes you'll see a checkbox "Repeat" this pops up a new window in which you can configure when, how often and exactly the recurrence of the event as such

Hope this helps!

I'd add a picture, but I need more rep :( – jaguilar Aug 16 '12 at 14:53
Just add a link, someone will come along an turn it into a picture (in fact, just add a comment having @soandos in it, and I will do it for you). – soandos Aug 16 '12 at 14:54
Thanks, Jaguilar. Unfortunately doesn't quite work as i would like. I can set, let's say Monthly on the third Thursday. The problem is that next month this means 20, other month 15 and so on. Doesn't really follow my requirements :( – Ionut Staicu Aug 16 '12 at 15:00
I see no way for achieving this in Google Cal. You could always put a reminder on the 20th and go from there. – jaguilar Aug 23 '12 at 20:35
