Perhaps something like acetone or a commercial product like Goof Off would work for your tar removal? However, you'll probably end up having to touch-up the paint a bit too.

Roofing Tar on Wall


Depending on how wide spread it is, it might be easier to dig it out, patch the wall and paint. Smeared tar will bleed through paint. I don't know if the stain killer primers will hold it back.

I will try that. I don't mind having to repaint the room as it is small. Patched a roof and did not know that there was a small opening and some of the tar leaked through and down an inside wall at a corner.
