The price for bailing out a tax haven is tax, unsurprisingly

Reuters has reported that:

International lenders would like Cyprus to raise its corporate tax and introduce a levy on capital gains and a financial transaction tax to ensure it can repay a euro zone bailout it asked for last year, euro zone officials said on Thursday.

So, the price of bailing out a tax haven is that it charges tax. Should anyone be suprised about that?
