Abstract: We prove that the existence of a local peak holomorphic function at each boundary point of an unbounded domain and at infinity implies the complete hyperbolicity of this domain, and we give a link between local tautness and global tautness of a domain. We end the note with some examples of taut and complete hyperbolic domains arising from the study of domains with noncompact automorphisms group.
