Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
Reese is really a brand and not a type of hitch, because they make all sort so different types, including load leveling and equalizing hitches.
I have to assume you know that if it is a weight distributing type hitch, that you need to disconnect the torsion bars first?
So assuming this is a normal hitch, the most common problem is tension of some kind. If the ground is not level and the trailer is trying to either pull or push on the hitch, then you will not be able to disengage easily.
A solution to that is to chock the trailer and put the Tahoe into drive and reverse alternately, while trying to lift. (careful to have the person doing this not let it move too much)
If that does not work, then one can loosen the nut under the socket latch, until it does not grab as tightly. (But don't get confused and loosen the ball nut.) The socket latch nut should be adjusted to that it firmly encapsulates the ball, without binding and with still being able to detach when released.

There are two kinds of Reese hitches out there.
For the Reese Signature series:
Under the head, there are two clips attached to 1/2 inch L shaped pins. Pull the clips off. Reach under the head and pull the pins out. Being careful not to let the hitch head tilt and pinch your fingers, lift the hitch head off.
At the base of the hitch, there are two more clips, one on each side. Pull them out. Reach underneath the base of the hitch and there will be four (two per side) pivot bars. Pull them all the way to a 90 degree angle. This will release the pins in the pucks in the bed of the truck. Lift the hitch base straight up about an inch and it will be free.

The adjustment was turned to far down and it is mushroomed on for keeps now. You will need to remove the nut from the ball stud and try to remove the ball stud off the tounge that way later
