Yil is year, what is yilin? And what does the "in" suffix in general?

in Turkish both the possessor and the possed thing gets a suffix. So -in here is the genitive suffix. These are already explained in tips&notes ;) https://www.duolingo.com/skill/tr/Possessives

And it takes the possessive since it's "of the X".

''Ağustos sekinci ay yılındır'' should be accepted ?

Or maybe saying ''Ağustos yılın sekizinci aydır''?
