Are you sure?  Mac OS X Yosemite ships with:

% /usr/bin/tar --version
bsdtar 2.8.3 - libarchive 2.8.3
% sw_vers
ProductName:    Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.10.2
BuildVersion:   14C109

...not a version of GNU tar.

Chuck is right; MacOSX has (always, I believe) shipped bsdtar.  Perhaps your tar is from Homebrew or Macports?
