Remember that current income is more important than previous earnings. If you have ways to prove your current income (letter from employer, pay stubs), that might be more important than your taxes.
Also, don't forget that while it's a pain to wait, even at the Embassy stage, they can request for further evidence. It is an option to you to go ahead and schedule the interview, get as much proof as you possibly can, letters explaining things, etc, and see what happens at the interview. If they're not satisfied with what they have, they might simply give out a 221(g) (I think that's the form number) and then you'll know exactly what else they want/need. That way you would still be in the process, instead of waiting, and you'll have a more precise idea of what else you'll need to get, instead of guessing your way through waiting.
