James Joseph Tayoun (born March 27, 1930) is a former Democratic member of Philadelphia City Council and of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

He served non-consecutive terms representing District 1 on Philadelphia City Council. He resigned from his first term in 1984 to run for a seat in the First Congressional District of Pennsylvania, challenging incumbent Thomas Foglietta. He resigned from his second term after pleading guilty to racketeering, mail-fraud, tax- evasion and obstruction-of-justice charges. He spent 40 months in prison. He is the 7th council member to be indicted since 1972.

He was also editor, publisher, and photographer for the Public Record, a weekly newspaper.
