Ishaan Dalal, EA

Ish holds a formal education in Computer Science/EE. His journey went off the beaten path when he became deeply involved in researching and informally helping resolve complex international tax issues. At the end, he thought, why not make his interest in taxation official?

Following California’s disaster-extended tax deadline on January 31, 2018, Ish spent that February preparing for and taking the three EA exams before the TCJA changes took effect. WIth his family’s support, he passed all three with all 3’s that month.

Days later, in March 2018, Ish began answering questions on TaxMama’s Forum until she asked him “Who are you? Why do you have so much time? How can I help better occupy that time?” 🙂 And they began collaborating, mostly behind-the scenes.

Before leaving his PhD program, Ish taught for a semester as an adjunct professor and aspired to enter academia. This year, he finally began teaching his first few EA courses.

Ish lives in Northern California with his mom and his cat. In his spare time, he maintains a small niche tax practice and also serves as the Chief Information and Marketing Officer for,
