You can access the inactive tags array with (assuming $myArray contains the array)

$myArray['inactiveTags'];

Your question doesn't seem to go beyond accessing the contents of the inactiveTags key so I can only speculate with what your final goal is.

The first key:value pair in the inactiveTags array is

array ('195' => array(
                 'id' => 195, 
                 'tag' => 'auto')
      )

To access the tag value, you would use

$myArray['inactiveTags'][195]['tag']; // auto

If you want to loop through each inactiveTags element, I would suggest:

foreach($myArray['inactiveTags'] as $value) {
  print $value['id'];
  print $value['tag'];
}

This will print all the id and tag values for each inactiveTag

If $a is the array that's passed, $a[76][0]['id'] should give '76' and $a[76][1]['id'] should give '81', but I can't test as I don't have PHP installed on this machine.
