$63,398 is the maximum AGI for a couple filing jointly with 3 qualifying children to get EITC.

 

This is an extract of Publication 596 page 4:

 

Your adjusted gross income (AGI) must be less than: 

• $56,838 ($63,398 for married filing jointly) if you have three or more qualifying children who have valid SSNs, 

• $52,918 ($59,478 for married filing jointly) if you have two qualifying children who have valid SSNs, 

• $46,560 ($53,120 for married filing jointly) if you have one qualifying child who has a valid SSN, or 

• $17,640 ($24,210 for married filing jointly) if you don't have a qualifying child who has a valid SSN.
