Create a small module to do it:

Step 1) Create file Prasan_Customerlinks.xml at app\etc\modules:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Step 2) Create Navigation.php at app\code\local\Prasan\Customerlinks\Block\Account\


class Prasan_Customerlinks_Block_Account_Navigation extends Mage_Customer_Block_Account_Navigation {

    public function removeLinkByName($name){
        return $this;

Step 3) Create file config.xml at app\code\local\Prasan\Customerlinks\etc\

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Step 4) Then in your local.xml file add following code.if local.xml file is not present create at app/design/frontend/yourpackage/yourtheme/layout/

    <reference name="customer_account_navigation">
        <action method="removeLinkByName"><name>tags</name></action>
