I am trying to get my rcp's working nicely and for the most part they are bomber.  I am trying to figure out how to place a ceiling tag in a room that technically has no ceiling so that it would show an exposed structure.  Would I need to just create a dummy tag to put in that room, or is there an easier way?

Since there is no ceiling, there's nothing for a tag to reference.  So, yes you have to create a dummy tag using a generic annotation.  I've attached one I've made if it helps.

Thanks for the response.  I figured that was the case and I created a dummy tag similar to what you did.  When I create a generic annotation, however, it tells me that i need to set the family category to ceiling tag in this instance.  If/when I do that, how do I insert this dummy tag?   When I use the "tag" command, I need to select something to tag.  Or if I copy a tag and change it to the generic, it is still associated with the other ceiling.  How does that work?

Since you're technically not tagging anything, the tag command won't work.  Instead, under the Drafting Tab, click on Symbol and select the fake ceiling tag from the Type Selector pulldown and insert.
