The Taiwan Independence Party (TAIP; Chinese: 建國黨), otherwise known as the Taiwan Nation Party, is a political party in the Republic of China (Taiwan).

It is usually associated with the Pan-Green Coalition and supports Taiwan independence.

Disappointed by the Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) gradual moderation of its support of Taiwan independence, some DPP members, many connected to Peng Ming-min's "Nation Building Association" formed the Taiwan Independence Party in 1996. However, the party has failed to win large-scale support, due to the lack of organizational skills and internal disagreements.[1] It has largely been displaced as Taiwan's ideological independence party by the newly formed Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU).
