I have reposted this to the tax section. It is more appropriate question for this section rather than the bankruptcy section. Good luck to you!
You each can request separate installment agreements, but the monthly payments you make will be based on your own finances, unless you are able to get a streamlined agreement in which case the payments will be based on the total liability. I hope this helps.

As a matter of fact, they will generally demand two seperate installment agreements unless you still live together. They will look at both of your household incomes seperately, and give you allowable expenses. What is left over is your means to pay. But it depends on what you owe. They are a lot more flexible if you owe less than about 25k.
