German term or phrase: German tax terms/phrases help!
I need some help in the translation of the ff phrases (the context is tax assessment):

1) Die Werbungskosten des Ehemannes sind durch den Arbeitnehmer-Pauschbetrag abgegolten.

2) Bei der Ermittlung der Bemessungsgrundlage für den Solidaritätszuschlag und ggf. die Kirchensteuer wird/werden dagegen der/die evtl. nur zeitanteilig gewährte(n) Kinderfreibetrag / Kinderfreibeträge in voller Höhe berücksichtigt und das Kindergeld bzw. vergleichbare Leistungen nicht hinzugerechnet.

2) Die Vorläufigkeitserklärung erfolgt aus verfahrenstechnischen Gründen und ist nicht dahin zu verstehen, daß die Regelungen als verfassungswidrig angesehen werden.

3) Soweit im Saldo ein Guthaben ausgewiesen ist, das nicht auf kuenftig faellig werdende Kirchensteuer angerechnet werden soll, bitten wir zur Durchfuehrung der Erstattung um Angebe eines Banks oder Postkontos.

4) Bitte haben Sie Verstaendnis, dass Ihre Zahlungen nicht auf Voranlagungsjahre oder Vorauszahlungszeitraeume aufgegliedert sind, sondern nur auf den ausgewiesenen Schuldsaldo angerechnet wurden.

5) Zu stornieren sind bei einer Erstveranlagung die bisherigen Vorauszahlungssollbetraege dieses Zeitraumes, soweit im Saldo enthalten und bei einer Berichtigung der Veranlagung die bisherige Festsetzung.

English translation:Werbungskosten
Explanation:
1) The husband's business expenses are covered by the employee's lump-sum allowance.
2) When determining the assessment basis for the solidarity surcharge and church tax if applicable, account is taken of the full amount of any child/children's allowance even if only granted on pro rata part-time basis, and child benefit or like payments are not added.
3) The declaration of provisional status is for procedural reasons only, and should not be construed as implying that the regulations are unconstitutional.
4) If there is a credit balance which is not to be offset against future church tax liabilities, please state a bank or post office giro account to which the amount is to be transferred.
5) We regret that your payments are not broken down according to preassessment years or prepayment periods, but are only offset against the balance of liabilities.
5) In the case of an initial assessment the previous prepayment liabilities for the period in question are to be cancelled if they are included in the balance; in that of an adjustment of the assessment the previous assessment is to be cancelled.

Werbungskosten - allowable deductions


Explanation:
Werbungskosten are not just business expenses but any allowable deductions. This is not just a deduction for the self-employed, but those working for someone can deduct Werbungskosten as well.

Would phrase pro rata "pro rated" in English.

Otherwise, I agree with most of what was previously posted.
