  • On March 8, 2015, we unexpectedly lost our dear friend and co-author Gene Whittenburg. As the original author of INCOME TAX FUNDAMENTALS, Gene was critical in designing the forms-based approach that the book has used successfully for more than two decades. It is simply not possible to quantify the degree of our loss. Gene started his life in small-town Texas; entered the Navy; served his country in Vietnam, earned Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degrees; and served as a distinguished faculty member at San Diego State University for almost 40 years. The outpouring of sorrow and gratitude from countless former students and colleagues are a wonderful tribute to Gene’s love and devotion to teaching. We intend to continue to honor Gene by upholding his standard of publishing excellence for many years to come.

He received a BS in accounting from the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL) an MS in taxation from Northeastern University (Boston, MA), and a Ph.D. in accounting (University of Massachusetts 2008). Prior to entering academia, Dr. Gill worked twelve years in the field of accounting, including roles in public accounting, internal audit, corporate accounting, and, ultimately, vice president of finance.

    Dr. Gill's research interests include a concentration in taxation, including mutual funds and college savings ("529") plans and wider interests in tax compliance behavior. He has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and his teaching interests include taxation and both financial and managerial accounting. Dr. Gill is the author of INCOME TAX FUNDAMENTALS, a co-author on FEDERAL TAX RESEARCH and an editor on the 2018 SOUTH-WESTERN FEDERAL TAXATION series.
