Hello Umesh-Ji:
You must have earned an EIC (Earned Income Credit) from the IRS. So, enjoy it! :)
People with a moderate income may earn this EIC, who may or may not be raising children. I know it because we qualified for it once upon a time.
                                              Workers who were not raising children in their
                                              home, were between ages 25 and 64 on
                                              December 31, 2006, and had income below
                                             $12,120 (or $14,120 for married workers) can
                                              get an EIC up to $412.
