Another look at your error message and I see the first thing you should try
> #Error in function (classes, fdef, mtable) :

You are passing the tau.dist function a data.frame.
If you look at tau.dist's man page:
you will see that the first argument should be a matrix.
If this distinction (between matrix and data.frame) is unclear -- and there have been times for all of us when that is the case -- a little reading and experimenting with the two data structures will likely pay off nicely.
