How long does it normally take the IRS to reconcile returns with forms reporting income?

A co-worker found a form from a tax year 2011. I don't know what form. It could be income or just an informational form. If he really did miss reporting 10K in income, wouldn't the IRS have caught it by now?

His wife passed away in 2011. He did file taxes by April 15th, but making a mistake would be understandable.
