jQuery $.ajax supports serializing plain Objects and primitive types to string. It doesn't know how to serialize a Date object to a string in a universal way. Did you want the .getTime() value sent, or the ISO-8601 date format as a string (with or without the time)? By default, JavaScript usually converts a Date object to a *locale-defined* string, which is almost certainly NOT good.

Convert the value to string representing the value you want to send before you give it to $.ajax.
