Howard S Cohen CPA

cpa web office picture.jpgHoward S. Cohen CPA is the owner of the Firm. Howard graduated from Dowling College in Oakdale with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting in 1982. While in Dowling, Howard was fortunate enough to study under Professor George T. Foundotos (former President of the Suffolk Chapter of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants). He went on to work at a small firm, but was eager to learn more. In 1983 he decided to move to a larger national firm. Howard was employed by Robbins, Greene, Horowitz & Company in 1983 and worked under the managing partner in the NY CPA firm. Howard passed the CPA exam and moved up in the firm over the next 7 years. Over the years he has worked with Doctors Associates (Subway Heros), Pall Corp., Garan (Garanimals clothing), Corning, Elk Transportation, Several Oil companies, Machine shops, Manufacturers, and Major Retailers and Restaurants.

In 1990 Howard decided it was time to open his own CPA firm. The long time desire to start his own company, along with the feeling that the clients were not getting the personal attention and service they deserved, made him realize that being a partner in a national firm was not what he wanted. So he started his own firm in Massapequa, NY. After many years in the Massapequa location, Mr. Cohens firm had grown. His clients spanned Long Island from East Hampton, to Manhattan and throughout the Tri-State area and as well as in many other states. Howard decided in 1996 to open a second location in Miller Place, NY and a few years later moved the whole company into the town of Miller Place NY.

Howard successfully runs a full service CPA firm. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants and is also a member of the North Shore Chamber of Commerce. He takes continuing education classes to stay up on all the latest tax laws, as well as being Peer Reviewed every three years. He lives and works on the North Shore of Long Island with his wife and 3 children. Howard welcomes you to come in and talk to him about what he can do to help you and your business.
