    Your daughter should file a tax return and file as "exempt" because she meets the "exempt" requirements of being able to be claimed as a dependent (to you) and a full time student. She would get a tax refund.

    If the gift cards are to be considered income from your employer, then they will be included on the W-2 that you receive from them.

    Yes, your daughter must file a return if she had income. You get to claim her as a dependent, but her income is hers alone. If she had any taxes withheld, she will probably get them back when she files her return. Make sure she indicates on her form that she is being claimed as a dependent by someone else.
