Will adding your name to the title of your parents' home prevent you from having to pay extra taxes when they die?

Yes. If it is done correctly the home will not be subject to probate procedures and therefore not subject to taxation. The best option if allowed by the state in which the property is located is Joint Tenants With The Right of Survivorship, (JTWRS). This is accomplished by the parents signing and recording a quitclaim deed from themselves to themselves and the child (person) who is to become the co-owner as JTWRS. Each named person becomes an equal share property owner and the property is exempt from probate and taxation upon the death of any owner.

You don't get rid of them, they just use medicines, condoms, surguries, etc. to prevent having extra ones. If that failed then the family have to pay fines.

For children, having parents that don't live together means they will get extra attention. For most people, having a broken family is primarily negative though.
