The 29-year-old chose to sit out the recent tour of South Africa after being relieved of the captaincy in the one-day and Twenty20 forms of the game and declining an offer to stay on as skipper of the Test side.
Taylor returned to the team for series with England under the captaincy of Brendon McCullum, but it seems his difficult relationship with coach Mike Hesson continues. And he reportedly told RadioLIVE in New Zealand: "I wouldn't say I'm as comfortable as I would like to be, but yeah, I guess time will tell."
He added: "There's a lot of things that have happened. Over the next couple of weeks or months things might get told but, right now, it's probably not a great time to talk about it."
The comments have left New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White nonplussed.
Quoted on Cricinfo, White said: "(I'm) surprised, really, (and) disappointed. A little bit confused why he would come out with those comments a day after an exceptional Test match where our guys played so well, when everything should be about the team.
"It should all be about the team performance now but unfortunately he's come out with these comments and I need to understand his motivation for that and I'll be talking to him about that in the next few days."
New Zealand travel to England later this year for a return series.
