Dutch term or phrase: gewetensgeld
This term is used when a tax payer is willing to pay additional tax after a tax correction. Conscience money sound just too obvious doesn´t it?

Explanation:
"Gelden gestort door eerder nalatige belastingschuldigen, veelal naamloos. De belastingadministratie geeft jaarlijks een lijst van deze stortingen". Sorry I cannot give you a standard translation. Would repentance payment sound convincing? Good luck!
