At the risk of being flamed to a crisp for answering this question:

cvs tag -d -B <tag>


cvs rtag -d -B <tag> <module>

However, carefully note the precautionary usage statement:

"-B      Allows -F and -d to disturb branch tags.  Use with extreme care."

If you remove a branch tag, you lose the ability to refer to the sources in 
that branch (unless you also happen to have a symbolic tag).  So, the 
questions you should ask yourself are:

1) why do I want to remove a branch tag?
2) is it really necessary to remove the tag?

I ask a slightly different question: why not keep the tag?  It does no harm 
and takes up almost no space.
