Am I eligible for the stimulus checks even though I just got my green card?

Hi! I recently adjusted my visa status from F-1 to permanent resident (my green card was approved July 2021) - could I still be eligible for the stimulus checks that were given out previously? I have been living in the States as a student since 2017. The only year I worked was 2019 (a one off job at my school) and I submitted a tax return for that, the other years I had no employment.

Gift Tax - Student Loans

My dad wants to pay off my student loans of $22,xxx. Would he or I have to claim it as a gift and pay the gift tax of the left over 7,000?

Credits

Child tax credit

Hello, I am reaching out, because I am a bit confused and the IRS is no help. I am a single mother of 3, head of house hold, and on unemployment. I was assuming I was getting the CTC, but when I went on the portal it says I will not be receiving them, although I meet all the criteria to receive them. I’m not sure if you can help in anyway or happen to have any answers. Thank you!

Taxes on Roth IRA unqualified early withdrawal

In 2018 I withdrew $18,200 from a Roth IRA. I mistakenly didn't include info about this on my taxes. I recently received a bill for about $5,100 for taxes and interest. This is based on the entire $18,200 being taxable as income. However, my understanding that you can withdraw your Roth IRA "contributions" at anytime and owe no taxes. But you are taxed on the "earnings". I calculated that of the $18,200 that I withdrew, only about $3,200 of it was "earnings". So, am I correct that I should only owe taxes on the "earnings" portion of the amount that I withdrew?
