You can now add tags to your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Elastic IP addresses while creating the resource. Tags are simple key-value pairs that you can assign to Elastic IP addresses to easily organize, search, identify, and control access using Identity and Access Manager (IAM) policies. By tagging at the time of creation you can eliminate the need to run custom tagging scripts after Elastic IP addresses creation. 

An Elastic IP address is a static, public IPv4 address which you can associate with any instance or network interface in your VPC. With an Elastic IP address, you can mask the failure of an instance by rapidly remapping the address to another instance in your VPC. 

Tag-on-create for Elastic IP addresses is now available in all commercial AWS Regions.
