add a file "tacacs" in dir /etc/logrotate.d like the following

/var/log/tac_plus.log {
           rotate 7
           weekly
           nocompress
           missingok
}

then try logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.d/tacacs

See also "man logrotate" for options you can specify in this file. In particular you might need to restart or signal the tacacs daemon when you rotate the log file

what do you have in your /etc/logrotate.d/tac_plus file? With "weekly" logfile is rotate only every other week. If you want it to be rotate every day, use "daily"

Wait until tomorrow. If still doesn't work it will need some investigation (but I'm going on vacation for one week so I'm not sure I'll be able to help)
