How to Delete a Local Git Tag?

You can delete a git tag locally by using the git tag command with the -d flag (or --delete), for example, like so:

git tag -d <tag-name>

For example, if you wanted to delete a tag called "v1.5.0", you would do it like so:

git tag -d v1.5.0

If the tag is successfully deleted, you will see an output similar to the following:

Deleted tag 'v1.5.0' (was 80c6ed6)

If the tag you're trying to delete does not exist locally, then it will result in the following error:

error: tag 'v1.5.0' not found.

Please note that this does not affect tags on your remote. You have to use a different git command to remove a tag from your remote repository.
