Simply remove the file in the usual way (with cvs remove) from a working
directory on the branch.

I don't understand -- tag -b creates a branch.  Did you mean tag -d? 
That would only delete the name of the branch, it would not delete the
file from the branch.  And it probably would lead to error messages
since the file is checked out on a branch whose name no longer exists
(although it's hard to be sure since you didn't bother to tell us
exactly *what* error you got).  This is simply an inconsistency in your
working directory, however; it is *not* a corrupt RCS file.
