I (we) am (are) not able to approve the application


Explanation:
Freistellungsantrag = application for an excemption (from taxes)
entsprechen = comply to (which is used in case of a requirement), agree to (in cazse of a non-binding wish), approve (in case of a request, to which an answer is required).

It is the application for an excemption that they are unable to agree with or approve.

I would have taken


Explanation:
the answer to approve the application ...

I have had a look on Google - approve application - in more than 3.000 cases,
by Courts, and other authorities

see e.g. Motion to approve "Application for Corrected Tax Roll" submitted by Joanne M. Coleman,
map #89, parcel #34111-17-238200; taxable value decreases from $119,600 ...
www.newark.k12.ny.us/board/9900/minutes/min991006.html - 17k - Cached - Similar pages

But, it is your choice, of course.

Regards,

Martina
