Is there a way to save an Illustrator file to a Tagged PDF file. I need to make the PDF 508 compliant and it would be faster if the conversion added the tags.

Thanks for the answer. It verifies what I spent an hour trying to do! You would think that all the Adobe products would interact better. Oh well. Guess I'll have to tag the file the hard way! – user10203 Feb 21 '13 at 12:08

I don't believe so. There are many aspects of internal PDF data which Illustrator can't natively create, tags are one such item.
