Yes this is possible that the qualifying child care expense that you pay to allow you to be able to work if you qualify to do this. Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for Publication 503 (2009), Child and Dependent Care Expenses

Tests To Claim the Credit

To be able to claim the credit for child and dependent care expenses, you must file Form 1040 or Form 1040A (or Form 1040NR), not Form 1040EZ (or Form 1040NR-EZ), and meet all the following 7 tests.

Sure. If you itemize you can claim your full property taxes. And this is new for 2008: If you don't itemize, you can claim $500 of property taxes ($1000 if married filing jointly). See the instructions for line 40 of 2008 Form 1040.

Yes. In fact, if they're preexisting the taxes should be there already; they're usually considered a "priority" claim. (You can add later taxes, such as property taxes billed after filing, to a Chapter 13 case as well.)

If your child files a joint return with her spouse, you cannot claim her (unless neither spouse owes any taxes and the only reason for filing is to claim a refund). If your child files any other kind of return, it makes no difference in whether you can claim her. Of course, you have to meet all of the usual requirements for claiming a dependent.
