$ git --version
git version 2.7.4

Closer inspection with

   $ for o in `git fsck 2>&1 | sed -e 's/.*tag \([0-9a-f]*\):.*/\1/'` ; do git 
cat-file tag $o | grep tag ; done

shows that these are all tags by

   tagger pingc <pingc>
   tagger jjoganic <jjoganic>

which have the required Unix timestamp and timezone field missing in the tagger 
line.

Could you perhaps replace these tags with syntactically correct ones?

Fortunately, no commits are affected by this problem, so no need to rewrite
commit history.

A repair script for exactly this problem (which I haven't tested yet) is 
suggested
at

    https://sunweavers.net/blog/node/36

To avoid such accidents happening in future, I strongly recommend that you put
into your ~/.gitconfig file the lines

[transfer]
     fsckObjects = true

This instructs git to syntax-check any incoming objects and commits before
allowing them into the repo.

This recommended practice will only become practical, however, once you
have fixed the existing broken tags.

Fixing this issue will also make it possible to clone your repo
on Git hosters (like Github or GitLab) that routinely fsck everything
they get.

Best regards,

Markus
