Can you identify this wiring set up?

Hi everyone,

This might be an easily answered question, but I'm a neophyte when it comes to electrical, so hoping somebody can assist.

Looking at the attached image, I was trying to figure out what the 'cut' white wire is in the back top left of this electrical box ( if you are looking at the image right side up ). It's barely visible and has some black electrical tape over the end of it. I'm pretty sure this is not a good set up to have in my electrical box and I'd like to correct it.

Any help appreciated and ty.

If it is taped and not connected to anything and everything works. Put a wire nut on it and leave it alone.
