Is it possible to identify when a respondent completed the survey in the American Community Survey (ACS) Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files?

No, there is no variable in the PUMS files to identify the month (or season, school year, etc) when the respondent answered the American Community Survey. Only the year of survey completion is available.
