The TAC is an Aboriginal community organisation developed in the early 1970s and funded by the federal government since 1973. It was incorporated as the Aboriginal Information Service in November 1973 and changed its name to Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre (TAC) in August 1977.

In 2016 we are officially named Tasmanian Aboriginal Corporation, however we still trade as the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre.
