Tau leptons play an important role in many Standard Model and Beyond the Standard Model physics processes that are being investigated at the LHC. This poster describes the reconstruction, identification and energy calibration algorithms for hadronic tau decays employed for the data collected from proton-proton collisions in 2015-2016 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC center-of-mass energy sqrt(s)=13 TeV. The algorithms are stable with respect to the number of concurrent proton-proton interactions and have supported a variety of physics results at ATLAS. The performance is measured in most cases with Z boson decays to tau leptons selected from the collision data.
