Checking it at several values of x could lend some validity to it.

Or verify the double angle tangent identity here:

and apply it twice

If you let   y =2x , then   tan(4x) = tan(2y)

If you apply the the double angle formula as ozo has suggested, you will get an expression in terms of   tan(y) = tan(2x)

If you can apply the double angle formula again, you will get a slightly messy expression which can be simplified to the given form.

This is a slightly more involved three or four step proof.
