Hey there @oguzhanvarsak  - sorry to hear about this.

I'm pretty sure that, currently, we don't have a strong support for Mac OS's tags feature but, just to be sure, I'd suggest logging a ticket with our team providing all the relevant information so we can investigate further with all of our tools at our disposal. 

You can do so from the following page:
