I noticed today that we have both and tags that seem identical.

has 19 questions. It has no tag excerpt.

has 35 questions. The tag excerpt currently says, "For questions related to debt collection, debt collection agencies, unpaid debts, etc."

Some of these questions have both tags.

Should these tags be combined? If so, which one should remain, and which one should be the synonym?

I think the tags should be combined. One tag for this subject is enough.

My personal preference is that the tag be kept. should be made a tag synonym.

There is now a "collection" tag alongside "debt-collection". Could these too be merged?

I presume "collections" is separate and means "collectables"...?
