This is from a list of required documentation for a potential guest researcher to work at a German university. I have an idea of what this means but want to make sure I have the correct translation. Thank you in advance.

temporary tax card / temporary income tax certificate
Explanation:
An Übergangsbescheinigung is issued for example when a person transitions from one job to another and the regular tax card is not available to the new employer yet. It's valid for 10 weeks, which is why I would call it 'temporary tax card' or 'temporary income tax certificate'.
