Meet the Founder

CT Tax was founded by Craig Tatlonghari, a California CPA and former San Francisco based SALT partner for Ernst & Young LLP. While with Ernst & Young, Craig led the firm’s Pacific Northwest Area SALT practice with leadership responsibility over the Bay Area, Portland, and Seattle markets.

Craig began his career working as a tax auditor for the State of California. He joined the Ernst &Young originally in 1994 and then rejoined the firm in 2005 after gaining valuable experience working for a large media company in San Jose. Craig often draws upon his diverse portfolio of experiences working in private industry, public accounting and governmental auditing when helping his clients work through complicated SALT issues.

Craig has extensive experience working in all areas of state and local taxation including assisting clients with realigning their tax structure to their business objectives, providing comprehensive state tax minimization services which focus on both direct and indirect taxes (e.g., state income tax filing positions, credits and incentives, sales and use tax refund reviews and property tax appeals) and representing clients throughout the various stages of tax controversy (i.e., from audit representation through administrative appeals). Craig also has a considerable amount of experience advising clients on the financial reporting aspects related to their SALT issues.

Craig is a California CPA and a member of the California Society of CPAs and the American Institute of Public Accountants.
