§, par., cl., AO
Explanation:
It is better to leave § because S. (Section) often gets confused with Seite and is just not used in Germany (therefore the client would have difficulties finding the reference).
par. is paragraph or Absatz
Satz is cl. as clause
AO is Abgabenordnung which is a proper name that should not be translated. To give an explanation for the client "tax code" is appropriate.

Thanks you very much Andy! This is a perfect answer.
I get all mixed up with § because in my country it means paragraph and although I will leave AO untranslated I needed a translation in brackets, so your help is much appreciated!

Satz = Sentence/Clause


Explanation:
I agree with the above with the exception that clause is often taken in English to refer to an incomplete sentence (referred to in German often as "Halbsatz"), whereas Satz generally refers to a complete sentence.
