Corner Tape coming up, do i have to pull all down.
 
I'm attempting to paint a bedroom.

In one corner there is tape under the paint that has bubbled in one spot. Do I have to pull it all down and put a new piece of tape up.. or can i just pull off that two inch area and try to mud over it?

If I pull it all off should I try to put a new piece of tape up.. What is the purpose of the tape on the corners?

Use a razor knife and cut it cleanly just past where it is loose. The tape is making a corner and usually is expanding over a little open space between the 2 surfaces. It would be best to reapply tape to this area.
