Vang Moua first started at Price Paige and Company as a tax intern. He assisted the tax department in scanning and preparing tax returns during the 2018 tax season. After proving he was a valuable addition to the team through his internship, Vang was offered a part-time position while finishing school.
In addition to his daily tax work, Vang also assists the audit department. Although he is part-time, Vang has been able to take on multiple tasks to help the audit department meet their deadlines.
