Kris Peterson, CPA
Talbot, Korvola & Warwick
Kris is a partner with TKW’s tax department. She joined the TKW in 2001 when the firm she began her career with merged its practice into TKW. Kris has more than 20 years of experience working with closely held businesses and their owners to resolve a wide range of tax and business issues involving both planning and compliance. She works with a broad spectrum of businesses but has a focus in the construction, hospitality and service industries. She is a licensed CPA in Oregon and is a member of both the Oregon Society of Certified Public Accountants (OSCPA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Kris grew up in the Portland area and continues to have strong ties to the region. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Portland State University followed by a Master of Taxation, also from Portland State. Kris now participates in the Portland State School Accounting Advisory Board to encourage a close relationship between the University and the profession.
When not engaged in tax planning Kris likes to indulge her passion for gardening, spending time alternately overplanting and trimming things, but not so much as to preclude actually sitting down and simply enjoying the view.
