The Toffees have beaten off interest from a number of clubs, including Norwich City, to land the highly-rated 20-year-old.
Taylor has come through the youth ranks at Prenton Park and has started over 100 games since making his debut in 2002.
Norwich boss Nigel Worthington confirmed that Taylor had already agreed his move to Everton.
"Ryan Taylor's one that we targeted," admitted Worthington. "He was one of those with a lot of potential that we would have liked to have brought here.
"But he's gone to Everton - it's a Premiership club and means that he doesn't have to move. He can still live in his home city."
Everton are proving to be the busiest Premiership side in the transfer market this summer as they have already sealed a deal for Tottenham's Simon Davies and are on the brink of completing a double raid on Chelsea for Scott Parker and Mikael Forssell.
