How do you give people tags/prefixes on your Minecraft server? I have a server but I do not know how to make it say I am the owner in the chat.

Yes, this is possible in vanilla Minecraft but requires the use of a third-party program called NBTExplorer.
First, open the world and add a team for each prefix to be used (e.g. owner, donator, etc). The command is:
/scoreboard teams add [name] [displayname]
Or in your case:
/scoreboard teams add owners Owner
Exit the world. Next, download NBTExplorer from here. Open it up.
Select your world within the
.minecraft/saves. Navigate to
data > scoreboard.dat > data > Teams
Inside that, there should be several
7 entries or
9 entries. Each of these represents a team, open it up and look at the
DisplayName entries to tell which is which.
There should be other entries in this: one called
Prefix and another called
Suffix. Edit the prefix so it says
[OWNER] §r MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE SPACE AND COPY-PASTE THE §r! The
[OWNER] part can be anything you like though, but for visibility, I recommend
[text] so that it is easily told apart from the username. You can also add a suffix if you like which will be displayed after the username.
Press the save button at the top, and reload the world. Join the team with
/scoreboard teams join owners [playername] and test it out in chat!
I hope this helps!
In 1.14, the process described by angussidney is a lot simpler. Use
/scoreboard teams add [name] [displayname] to make a team, and then use
/team modify [name] [prefix|suffix] "prefix/suffix" to add a prefix or suffix. The
/team modify command lets you change lots of other things besides prefixes and suffixes as well.
