          for tag in tags:

    not sure what is going wrong for you.
    Your code looks ok and I quickly tested it here without problems in Script Manager:

    import c4d
    def main() :
        obj = doc.GetActiveObject()
        if obj == None:
        tag = obj.GetTag(c4d.Tbaketexture)
        if tag == None:
        c4d.CallButton(tag, c4d.BAKETEXTURE_BAKE)
    if __name__=='__main__':

    A small side note, I'd recommend to use the constants provided by the SDK instead of hard coded values.

    Where are you using this code? In a script, a plugin (if so, which type and where), Interaction tag, Python tag, Python Xpresso node or Sketch material?
