When is taps now played?
Taps now is played by the military at burial and memorial services, to accompany the lowering of the flag and to signal the "lights out" command at day's end. Take out lowering of the flag and this is correct. Retreat is played for the lowering of the flag. Most military bases I've been on play TAPS at 2200 HOURS(10pm).

Asked in Military Terminology
In the military taps is played on the bugle at what part of the day?
(WRONG)In the evening when the flag is lowered. TAPS is not played when the colors are lowered, that is called retreat. Reveille is played in the morning during the raising of the colors. Usually about 2200 HOURS (Lights Out) TAPS is played. ---------------- At evening retreat, there are two bugle calls played in succession: "Retreat" then "To The Colors" As already correctly stated "Taps" is played at lights out.
