What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

From time to time I notice questions that could be improved (in style, punctuation, clarity of thought, tags, etc.) But I also have the answer to them.

I just feel wrong editing a question (even for a retag) that I also answer.

What's the policy on this?

Do it.

You're helping the site, the readers and the whole shack when you edit a badly written or unclear post into a well written/unambiguous version. Even if that means realigning it with more appropriate tags.

Just because you want to answer as well doesn't mean there's any kind of conflict of interest or any social no-no frowning at you for answering a question you just happen to improve.
