No, I've only heard "ta" used in Britain and Scotland as "thanks". In the US "ta, ta!" would be used by someone trying to say goodbye in a British way. As Linda says, in the US "ta tas" are a euphemism for female breasts† ;-)

Cheers,
Pam

TaTa is also the name of India's biggest motor vehicle producer.† I just googled that, but do remember seeing "TaTa" on the front of buses.
