German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
German term or phrase:Gehaltsbescheinigung
Da ich der einzige der persönlich Haftenden bin, der fest angestellt ist, kann das Finanzamt bei mir eine Lohnpfändung durchführen. Ich musste bereits meinen Arbeitgeber angeben, und es wird sehr unangenehm sein, wenn das Finanzamt dort eine Gehaltsbescheinigung anfordert.
Explanation: I know no exact translation for the actual word - but from the context I might say "if the tax authorities request a confirmation of my salary from my employer"; or verbal: "if the tax authorities request my employer to disclose my salary details".
No particular reference.

Explanation: I already had to reveal my employer, ..., if the tax office requests a salary confirmation/verification from them.
Typically such inquiries by the tax office regarding an employee's salary are triggered by some form of financial/tax trouble; subsequently they can result in additional problems for the employee at work, depending on the position (s)he is in.
