In chapter 3 of Apostol's introduction to Analytic Number Theory, after proving Euler's Summation Formula he uses it to calculate the partial sums of a few series. This is theorem 3.2, and in part (a), I am not sure where he gets the +1 term from. It has to come from the f(y)([y]y) expression in the formula, but this evaluated at y=1 should be zero. Any help would be great, thank you.

Perhaps you should post more detail. My copy of Apostol doesn't have the theorem you are talking about (it might be the wrong book or the wrong edition). Others won't have Apostol at all.
