TDixon, it sounds like you're saying that someone who pays no tax to the IRS can't get a check through EITC. This is simply NOT true. Many employees have no withholding because they don't even earn enough to be required to file a tax return. But if they file and meet the other requirements for EITC, they get a check! And if others qualify who have had withholding, they can receive a check equal to MORE than the amount that was withheld.
"For low income working persons and families, the federal Earned Income Tax Credit can provide a return of some or all of the federal tax that was withheld and in some cases, the EITC can exceed the amount of tax paid."
