Let's say I have posted an answer on a question, that answer got 50 upvotes. Sweet.

Next, the question was retagged, and was added to it.

Will those 50 upvotes be counted towards my badge on ? Or would only new upvotes on my answer count? Or perhaps the answer wouldn't be counted on the because it wasn't there in the first place?

Could anyone please clarify this?

Yes, they will count towards it. But tag scores are not recalculated until 03:00 UTC.

And it also works the other way. A tag gets removed: you lose the tag score :( – Daniel Fischer Jan 7 '13 at 0:03
