Taplin studied in Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood Township, New Jersey, where he continues to study and reside. He initially began his studies there under the tutelage of its founder, Rabbi Aharon Kotler. He holds the position of Official Examiner ("bochen") for Beth Medrash Govoha.
Taplin's magnum opus was first published in Hebrew under the title Taarich Yisroel (תאריך ישראל) and he subsequently published an English edition (The Date Line in Halacha) in 1999, republishing another edition through Feldheim Publications in 2003. His work explores the various opinions on the location of the international date line as recognized by Jewish Law and the various outcomes of the differences between the varying opinions spanning many facets of Jewish Law.
