Confusion With Using Comparison Operators on Dates


I want to use conditions to mark rows where the date is within the past 30 days, in just trying to test this out I made a column of properly formatted dates and am referencing them in an IF formula:

=IF(Date@row > TODAY(-30), "True", "False")

Today's date is 4/20/2023 so TODAY(-30) returns 03/21/23. When Date@row = 04/12/23 the formula returns "False", telling me that Smartsheet believes that 03/21/23 > 04/12/23.

Why is it doing this and can I get some clarification on how to use < and > on date values in Smartsheet?
