My husband received a letter supposedly from the IRS yesterday regarding a debt of $5,100.00. He has not had to file any tax returns since I have been with him which is 2010. Is this a real letter or a scam?

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.

I have tried several times to contact the 800 number for the IRS and also the 856 phone number for the local IRS office without success! Now WHAT SHOULD I DO!!!
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Is nobody picking up when you call? Is this the number?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
