To delete the azure Resource Tags,

PS C:\> $vm = Get-AzVM -Name Testmachine2k16
PS C:\> Remove-AzTag -ResourceId $vm.Id -Verbose

To remove the azure resourceGroup tags,

PS C:\> $rg = Get-AzResourceGroup AnsibleTestRG
PS C:\> Remove-AzTag -ResourceId $rg.ResourceId -Verbose

To remove the individual tag, you can directly apply the tag name but be cautious as it will remove the given tag name across all the subscriptions.

The below command will remove the tag from the entire subscription if it is not associated with multiple resources.

Remove-AzTag -Name 'Owner' -Value 'Chirag' -Verbose

If you have done something wrong while removing tags and if you have already a TAGS backup, you can search on the google article to import the tags again.
