I would also consider penalty abatement. Given his diagnosis for brain cancer and the job losses I would think there is a good argument for the abatement due to his inability to manage his affairs properly. It was only two years, the money was hidden from the spouse and she never saw the return.

Innocent spouse might also be an option but in a community property state I am not sure it helps.
