Henry Grabkowitz grew up in Rochdale Village (possibly known to some as the site of the old Jamaica Racetrack) in Jamaica, NY (New York City) and is a graduate of Stuyvesant High School and Queens College (CUNY) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in accounting.
Henry has been employed in the field of public accounting since March 1979, first as an accounting clerk and then as an accountant when he completed his degree. He passed the Special Enrollment Examination in 1992 and was admitted to practice before the Internal Revenue Service that same year. He completed the NAEA-sponsored NTPI curriculum and was named a NTPI fellow in 2008. Henry was a principal in the financial and tax-consulting firm of Shnayer, Grabkowitz & Co., Inc., with offices in Manhattan until 2008. Since then he is a principal in the firms Soaring Eagle Systems LLC, first in Lake Success, NY and more recently in Holbrook, NY and an associate with Summit Tax Advisors in Woodbury, NY.
Henry’s practice consists mostly of income tax preparation for high income and high net worth individuals and their closely-held entities, as well as representation before various taxing authorities. He has developed through self-teaching a specialty in computer-based accounting applications. As an extension of that interest, he is currently a Microsoft Certified Professional.
