Can I submit amended income tax return form 1040?

Consular denied the immigrant visa to my parents because I did not show enough income in my tax return. Now if I amend and redo my 2010 income tax return increasing the amount by taking off all the expenses to meet the poverty guide line will the consular reconsider the case? Thank You

Definitely better if you get a joint sponsor - the consulate will likely view a return amended to meet the requirement as lacking credibility; may end up getting you in trouble without helping your parents.
