Just barely over a week ago, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis officially joined the 2024 presidential election.
For months, there was so much speculation about whether DeSantis would become a candidate for the White House. Even when he was running for reelection as Florida’s governor, DeSantis was questioned about the matter.
However, with him now being in the GOP primary race, Americans are getting a look at the policies he has to offer and what he’d bring to the table as president.
During a recent interview, the Florida governor confirmed that if he’s elected to the White House, he’ll be making a major change as it pertains to the IRS, according to Red State.
A Loud and Clear Message
In an interview, DeSantis said he would, in fact, abolish the IRS. The 2024 presidential candidate explained that the IRS has become bloated and ineffective, hence failing to work for the good of the American people.
Instead of having the IRS and the present taxation system, DeSantis confirmed he would sign off on a single rate, flat tax measure.

This development comes as DeSantis has been increasingly making the rounds in the media, hence helping Americans become familiar with him and his agenda.
With the Florida governor now being a presidential candidate, he’s also got more events and interviews coming up in critical communities across the nation.
A Long Overdue Change
Many Americans can agree that the IRS is not operating above board by any means. People can also remember the days when the IRS targeted conservatives during the time former President Obama was in office.

Even now, the Biden administration has taken steps to further inflate the IRS and grant it the power to go after everyday Americans.
Given the corrupt nature of the organization, DeSantis is more than willing to stand up and make necessary changes.
