I've found a couple different Citori shotguns I'm interested in. One is a short and one is a long tang. Is their a difference in build quality or value? What impact does the tang have?

Not that I am aware.
I might be wrong but scarce stock availability for those old long tang guns
plus the fact of blue wear on the tang might negatively affect their value.
There is no difference in quality between my 1984 Citori Trap with long tang vs.
my current Citori CXT short tang. The newer 2018 CXT is far more desirable to shoot IMHO.

Long tang guns will be older. Therefore, they're likely to have fixed chokes. Unless I'm mistaken, all of the newer, more versatile guns will be short tang.

The tang isn't going to help you hit birds. The ability to change chokes might help.

The long tangs look cool but the deal with the stock availability could be a problem. Now you have me thinking about it. Probably going to lose sleep.

LTRK -Long Tang Round Knob--Older model possibly more collector interest.
