Cassandra V.

Individual Tax Preparation

Even though I didn’t end up using Niel, I was confident that I would be in good hands. Through the consultation process, Niel was very transparent about his process and offered to cater the process to my needs, depending on whether I wanted to be involved through the entire process vs just presenting the information at the end.
Basta+Croop's reply
Cassandra, thank you very much. It was really nice talking with you. I hope to work with you one day.

Excellent experience! Basta + Croop were very professional, expedient and got my taxes done very fast. Its the best and easiest engagement with a tax professional I've ever had. He offered advice and assisted with how to fill out my forms with my employers at no additional cost. The checklist was extremely helpful, easy to use and saved a lot of back and forth.
Basta+Croop's reply
Thank you very much! It was wonderful working with you and I hope to continue working with you for many years down the road.

Background Check

Neil Basta


  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When beginning with a new client we first conduct a client interview to understand how we can best meet the needs of the client. We then agree on a service fee which is followed by signing confidentiality and service agreements. Thereafter, 99% of business is handled online using secure cloud-sharing, email, and phone calls. Once a new client is established, our process is mostly automated with very little client involvement required.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Enrolled Agent Certification in Risk Analytics B.S. in Accounting Continuing Education in accounting, tax preparation/research, credit analyst, payroll management, business consultant.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Neil Basta is an Enrolled Agent with an extensive background in accounting and tax management. After working for many years in the accounting industry, he has noticed brick-and-mortar firms are not necessary for today's fast-paced business. Therefore, he began his digital firm for client ease in mind while aiming to build solid long-term relationships with clients. With Basta+Croop you speak one-on-one with a real accountant so we can customize our services and prices to meet your needs.
