Description: The authors present a more detailed account of the study (hep-ph/9903238) for the supersymmetry reach of the Tevatron in channels with isolated leptons and identified tau jets. They review the theoretical motivations for expecting such signatures, and describe the relevant parameter space in the minimal supergravity and the minimal gauge-mediated models. With explicit Monte Carlo simulations they then show that for certain parameter ranges, channels with two leptons and one tau jet offer a better reach in Run 2 than the clean trilepton signal. They emphasize that improving on tau ID is an important prerequisite for successful searches in multiple tau jet channels. Finally, they discuss some triggering issues.
