My daughter is 18 working since August. FT student. I can still claim her & she can file that she can be claimed but do I include her W-2 on my taxes? She made $8000

You do not include a dependent's earned income from wages reported on a W-2 or income from self-employment on your tax return.  

The dependent would file their own tax return and indicate on their return that they can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.
