I think we may be getting to crux of your.

SNAPSHOTS are never tagged. I think most would consider this a bad maven practice.  This isn't
what a SNAPSHOT is for. A SNAPSHOT is meant to reflect the source in your trunk, not a tag.

If you wish to create a tag of something, create that build as a release. You get around that,
and I think all will be well for you.
