they already have all the information they need (income from the return and contribution amount from the 5398 filed with them by the custodian).

Phil, Thanks for the info and the reference to Pub 590. What you said above I'll pass along. The idea that their is no statue of limitations, and all the data resides with the governing agency, that should indeed be enough to warn him away from this future tax dodge.

You may be able to entice him by telling him that there could be a way for him to make perfectly legal Roth contributions going forward.

If the availablity of this is possible without reducing current earned (W2) income, would love to know for myself how to make Roth IRA contributions when you exceed income maximums.
