Our Values & Standards

Responsiveness, Quality, and Technology
You deserve a timely response


Most clients do not contact us just to say hello (Although that would be nice sometimes). They usually have an issue they need expert advice on. And they need an answer now. And nothing is more infuriating than contacting a business and not hearing back within a day. We understand that. At HJ Zarabet we strive to return all client inquiries in no later than one business day.

Less clients = More service


HJ Zarabet & Associates, CPAs takes a different approach to servicing clients. Whereas other firms strive to grow, we strive to stay small and personal. We prefer to keep a select, limited client base so as to provide the best, personalized service as possible to each and every client. Many firms try to be all things. Here at HJ Zarabet & Associates, CPAs we specialize in handling your small business accounting, payroll, business tax returns and individual tax returns. These are the core accounting needs of every small business and that is our niche. And we are here to listen and give advice. We're another set of ears to bounce ideas off of. If a need arises that we do not service, we will recommend a CPA or attorney from within our network of trusted firms to help you out.

Things move quickly. Stay ahead.


At HJ Zarabet & Associates, CPAs we utilize the most current, up to date apps available. There is an old way to run an accounting practice and a modern way. We choose the modern way. Our goal is to say goodbye to paper and to keep all your files safely in the cloud. Now you can make timely business decisions from anywhere you can get on the internet. Technology gives you tremendous freedom. Let HJ Zarabet give you the freedom to enjoy your life and family, and be less of a slave to your business

About Howard Zarabet

A little bit about my background

Howard Zarabet

Certified Public Accountant, Enrolled Agent

In a nutshell:

  • Small business owner for 20+ years
  • Studied marketing at the University of Maryland
  • Studied accounting at UCLA
  • Received my CPA license in New York State in 1998
  • Received my Enrolled Agent license in 2014

  • "Local" CPA firm experience

I'm blessed to be married to an amazing woman with whom I share three beautiful daughters, a sassy shih tzu (rescued) and a big ole' goofy chocolate lab (also rescued). When I'm not doing books and taxes, reading up on changing tax law or running my own business I am most likely engrossed in a good book, playing my bass, listening to classic jazz or blues or just washing my car (which is never clean enough).

After we're done talking about your accounting needs we can move on to talking about music, cars or guitars. Looking forward to it!

To verify my New York State CPA license:
  • Please click here after reading directions. This is the New York State Office of the Professions search page. Use the "Search By Name Within a Profession" option. You will find a drop down list of professions
  • "Accountant, Certified Public" is the very first option in the drop down list. Highlight that.
  • The box below this drop down asks for the CPA's name
  • Enter "Zarabet Howard. Press "Search". You will see my NYS CPA license status
