To file as a "Qualified Joint Venture" (not sole proprietors) on two Schedule Cs they can just file the Schedule Cs.  There is no need to notify the IRS.

As a side note, a Qualified Joint Venture can be done in any State.  The restriction is that if they are the only two members of an LLC, then that can only be done in a Community Property State.
