installing foam board

When installing 3/4" foam board over existing and or repaired wall sheathing (1/2" plywood & fiberboard) should I tape all of the seems before the housewrap? Or would this trap moisture from escaping through the wrap?

Welcome to the forum!

Depends on if the foam board or the house wrap is the air barrier: http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/...s-housewrap-go
