IMPORTANT | PULSE Changes for Taxable & Non-Taxable Items

THANK YOU! For your continued partnership during the tax changes that were implemented on September 12, 2017.


As a result of the very constructive feedback that many of you have provided, we have made some improvements to the PULSE cart process.

Effective Thursday, October 5, 2017, when entering items into the PULSE cart, you will now choose a category for each item and TEMPOE will determine the tax, if applicable.


For example:

  • If you are entering a TV, you will choose Electronics from the drop-down menu
  • If you add a TV wall mount, you will choose Accessories from the drop-down menu


As a reminder, do not include taxes when submitting for funding in PayPULSE. Only submit the amount of the lease, otherwise funding will be delayed.


If you have additional questions, please refer to the Training section of PULSE for the Dealer Tax FAQ document.  You may also view the FAQ’s here.


If you have any additional questions or have not received your Tax Exemption Certificate, please contact TEMPOE Retail Support at 844.863.2948 or email us at


We want to thank you for your continued partnership and value your feedback.

TEMPOE runs Tool Drive for Habitat for Humanity®

zzzzAfter a 2015 filled with philanthropic endeavors, TEMPOE wasted no time starting another year of giving back to the community in 2016. Associates and executives in the Cincinnati and Manchester TEMPOE offices spent the months of December and January gathering tools to donate to local Habitat for Humanity® centers.

The TEMPOE Tool Drive resulted in hundreds of tool donations for Habitat for Humanity® centers in Cincinnati and Manchester. The tools will help the local Habitat for Humanity® centers in the ongoing building of simple, affordable homes in partnership with low-income families.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team’s commitment to giving back to the community,” said TEMPOE President Orlando Zayas. “It was particularly special to see such widespread participation in the Tool Drive during the holiday season. I’m looking forward to even more philanthropy from our team in the new year.”

10624968_10156417308870564_6738803933068719659_nThe hundreds of donated tools will aid in building and rehabbing of more than 40 homes in the Tri-State area around Cincinnati and many more homes in the New Hampshire region. Workers will receive hammers, nails, extension cords, working gloves, entire tool boxes and more thanks to the donations from the TEMPOE team.

To follow the immediate impact from TEMPOE’s donations, head to Habitat for Humanity’s local Facebook pages for the Cincinnati and Manchester areas.

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.” Their mission is “to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
