This information is not stored by CVS.  With effort, you can put some
bounds on the time:

1. A tag or branch label must have been created sometime *after* the
revision that was tagged.

2. If the label is a branch that itself had commits on it, then the
branch was created sometime *before* the time of the first commit.

3. If you assume that the label was created across multiple files at a
single moment in time (which doesn't have to be the case--separate files
can be tagged at different times), then constraints (1) and (2) can be
applied to each file that was tagged, further narrowing the time range.
