Good afternoon. Your husband should contact he IRS immediately and speak with them and verify if this is authentic and sent by them. There are scammers out there, so nothing should be paid until he verifies they sent this and not some third party. A lot of the time these scammers will call someone over the phone but in this case, the IRS does send written letters, for money owed but he should be aware of it and it should only be payable to them.
Is nobody picking up when you call? Is this the number?
