IRS Tax Tip 2006-14 If you gave any one person gifts in 2005 that valued at more than $11,000, you must report the total gifts to the Internal Revenue Service and may have to pay tax on the gifts. * ** *** **** The person who receives your gift does not have to report the gift to the IRS or pay gift or income tax on its value.**** Gifts include money and property, including the use of property without expecting to receive something of equal value in return. If you sell something at less than its value or make an interest-free or reduced-interest loan, you may be making a gift. There are some exceptions to the tax rules on gifts. The following gifts do not count against the annual limit: � Tuition or Medical Expenses that you pay directly to an educational or medical institution for someone's benefit � Gifts to your Spouse � Gifts to a Political Organization for its use � Gifts to Charities If you are married, both you and your spouse can give separate gifts of up to the annual limit to the same person without making a taxable gift. Annual Exclusion A separate annual exclusion applies to each person to whom you make a gift. For 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, the annual exclusion is $11,000. Therefore, you generally can give up to $11,000 each to any number of people in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, and $12,000 in 2006 and none of the gifts will be taxable. If you are married, both you and your spouse can separately give up to $11,000 to the same person in 2002, 2003, 2004 or 2005 ($12,000 in 2006) without making a taxable gift. If one of you gives more than $11,000/$12,000 to a person in any one of these years, refer to gift splitting in Publication 950, Introduction to Estate and Gift Taxes. Gifts to individuals are not deductible on the donor's income tax returns.

As long as they meet the qualifying child or relative tests, yes.

No, only one parent can claim a child as a dependent in any given tax year. Whoever the child stayed with more gets to claim them. In a 365-day tax year, the parent who had the child for at least 183 days get to claim them. If the child stayed with both parents exactly 50% of the time, whoever the child is staying with on tax day (April 18th in 2011) gets to claim them.

If you earn more than $5,700 and contribute substantially to your own living expenses, you'll probably be able to claim your child as a dependent. This is because your parents can't claim you as a dependent if you contribute more than 50 percent to your own support. If your parents are able to claim you, you can't claim anyone else, even if your parents don't actually list you on their tax return and use the exemption for you. If you don't qualify as their dependent, you can claim your own child.
According to the IRS, the only person who can claim a child as a dependent on a tax return is a relative (to include step parents, foster parents, etc) who provided custodial support for the child for more than 50% of the year. In other words, if the child lives with you for at least 183 out of 365 days during the tax year, you can claim him/her. If the child lived with you for 182 days or less, you cannot.
Only if you are found to be a unsuitable parent. Regardless of who has them you still have to pay child support. If you mean that you support your parents, that is optional while child support is not.

Yes, if the child meets all of the tests to be a dependent.
Paying Child Support has nothing to do with any right to claim the child on their return. A divorce agreement or custody agreement usually deals with rights to claim a child on a tax return. If there is no such agreement deciding who get to claim the child then the IRS rules do. Usually the first right is the custodial parent (the person the child lives with). Residency is one of the requirements to claim a dependent.
Only if the claim was kept active after age 18.
The child was living in the house with permission. Permissive use is a bar to any claim of adverse possession. I assume the property is owned by a second child.
