It is when you pull out 1/2 of the threads of the cord over the last 0.5-1" (depending on cord diameter) and cut them off.
See Step 2 in this document
for more details. There is also a description, with more pictures found here. (Part A: Make the Taper).
FWIW, I don't perform the taper until just before I pull the buries. You can probably do it after the bury, but I think the taper makes it easier to pull the inner cord through the outer cord.
