As the original author of INCOME TAX FUNDAMENTALS, Gene Whittenburg was critical in designing the forms-based approach that has clarified and re-shaped how students have learned income tax fundamentals for three decades. Although co-author and dear friend Gene Whittenburg was unexpectedly lost in March of 2015, this edition continues to uphold his highest standard of publishing excellence and further the insights and advancements that he started in preparing learners to be successful tax preparers years ago.

Steven Gill is an associate professor in the Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy at the Fowler College of Business at San Diego State University. He received a B.S. in accounting from the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL), an M.S. in taxation from Northeastern University (Boston, MA) and a Ph.D. in accounting (University of Massachusetts). Prior to entering academia, Dr. Gill worked for 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 both undergraduate and graduate levels and his teaching interests include taxation and both financial and managerial accounting. Dr. Gill serves as the author of INCOME TAX FUNDAMENTALS, co-author of FEDERAL TAX RESEARCH and editor for the 2019 SOUTH-WESTERN FEDERAL TAXATION series.
