My wife died and I fell behind on everything, including filing and paying my US income taxes. I understand that I owe but these penalties are ridiculous as I relied on her for everything and had no idea. Is there anything I can do to get these penalties reduced?
This was a life changing event and I would hoe the IRS would understand.

That is horrible news. The bottom line is YES under the right circumstances you can get penalty abatement relief.
