You are NOT responsible for your spouse's tax debt.
However - that debt may be collected from jointly owned funds, joint tax refund and a tax lien may be placed on jointly owned assets.
As long as your spouse has an installment payment plan in place and is current with agreed payment - the IRS will NOT garnish wages or any other income.
