Taseyeva (Russian: Тасе́ева, IPA: [tɐˈsʲeɪvə]) is a river in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia. It is a left tributary of the Angara River and is 72 miles (116 km) long. If its tributary, the Chuna River, is included, it is 820 miles (1,320 km) long. Its drainage basin covers 128,000 square kilometres (49,000 sq mi). The river is formed by the confluence of the Biryusa and Chuna rivers and flows northwest to its mouth in the Angara, close to Kulakovo. Its average discharge is 740 cubic metres per second (26,000 cu ft/s).

The Taseyeva and its tributaries, the Biryusa and Chuna rivers, drain much of the area between the Angara and the upper Yenisei River. The Biryusa (west) and Chuna (east) flow crookedly north, then bear northwest and join to form the Taseyeva. The Taseyeva continues west and then north to join the Angara, which flows west about 60 kilometres (37 mi) to join the Yenisei.
