No DistanceInfo from Tanker TACAN?!

Kidding me right? I just played a mission a couple minutes ago and tanked. Use the tacan radio and set it to AA T/R (air-2-air transmit/receive) then hit the tacan button on the Navigation panel behind the stick. You'll get both a heading indicator flag on the HSI and the top left will give you distance.

Isn't the "Y" band an issue currently? Try setting the TACAN of your tanker on "X" instead.

Y band isn't currently implemented, use X band instead for the time being.

IIRC, this will work for KC-10 only. 135 is only capable of range, no bearing.

Yes...X-Band (TACAN) works and gives bearing and distance. Will the Y-Band be implemented someday?

 

Yes, already done. But it won't be in the next patch (1.1.1.1 hotfix), it'll be in a later (full) patch, whenever that may be.
