I have used tags in my database to differentiate different branches of my family tree. Somehow I now have a duplicate of each tag in the 'organise tags' list.

This should not be possible.  Do you know how this happened?

Only one of each shows when I click on the 'tagged selected rows' icon in the person view. But if I choose 'edit the tag list' in the person editor the duplicates show, with only one of the duplicates ticked. In the person filter editor, the duplicates also show. I have tried exporting and importing into a new family tree but that doesn't help.

Each tag has a unique internal id, a name and a colour.  If two tags somehow get the same name (which is a bug) then the code should still work but be confusing.  I'd have to look at the code, but it is quite possible that some menus would remove duplicate names.

How can I get rid of the duplicates without risking removing the wrong one and losing a tag that could be on a few thousand people?

You can rename a tag in the Tag Organiser.  Rename some tags so that the names are unique.  Then remove the unwanted tags.  Finally, rename the any tags back that have the wrong name.

Let me know if you have any problems.
