my ex husband is threatening to spank my 9 year old daughter.

My ex is very verbal abuser. He threatened to spank my 9 year olds butt but used choice words I don't use. I know that there are parents that do spank. But is there a age that it should not be done? He has been in trouble with physical abuse toward my kids. Is there a age that it's not appropriate to do so?

Depends where you live. However, if it is legal where you live, and it isn't specified in your parenting plan or court orders that this can't happen, then he can spank her.

Perhaps you could have a conversation with her about choosing better behaviours so it doesn't even have to be an issue?
