Amazon has the MicroJig Tapering Jig for $100.06. The all time low according to CCC is $92 so not the best deal, but seems like micro jig stuff rarely goes on sale.

Also available from an Amazon marketplace seller for $99.

It is very easy to build your own tapering jig for a table saw. I would not recommend something like this unless you have a very specific usage case for it.
Not sure why this was downvoted. Any woodworker should be able to build one for a few dollars worth of plywood.
There are tons of DIY tapering jigs out there, but can anyone point me to some builds for a DIY tapering jig with accurate repeatable 1/16" per foot or 1/8° incremental indexed settings and that integrates well with Grrripper pushblocks?

Any cheaper commercial options with similar features?

Hats off for a MicroJig post, always good to see their stuff. That being said I agree that $100 is a lot to spend on something when either home built (more labor less cost) or elsewhere like the Rockler (same labor less cost) are such viable options

Standard Price $99.99, on sale for $69.99 often

This. I clicked on this post expecting to decide "oh, nah, I could build that", something like the Rockler one GTPquickRB posted. But I didn't realize it was a precision device that actually integrated with the GRR-Ripper I already have. Now I'm definitely considering it at this price.

I do get your point, but man, $100 for a jig is really stretching it. Considered my table saw was bought for $200, it seems crazy to spend that much for a jig. Generally, I feel the market for jigs is a big rip off. Like those Kreg jigs that cost far more than a good circular saw.

This is a really nice tapering jig, and if you were going to need to use it quite often, then I'd recommend you consider it. But what I did was make the other tapering jig that MicroJib gives plans for, using their MatchFit clamps:

From the Rockler's link above, their can do 1 degree increment as well. And if you need a gripper to use this jig then this jig is definitely much more expensive than just $100.

Like others said, this might be worth it if you do a lot of tapers but usually people do 4 at a time (per project) and only the first one requires setup, the rest are repeats

It's too expensive for my use but looks like it can do a lot. Made in USA is a rare plus these days too.
