Validation rules just look for a formula to turn true, so you don't need the IF statement. You should be able to just write:

 

Account.TestDate__c < Today()

Create this validation rule in the Contact object.

IF( Account.TestDate__c <= Today(),true,false)

Replace the TestDate__c with your own date field in accounts.
