Well the empire has one simple goal: They want to crush the republics hope.
On the republic side you can hear that one of the reasons for the rebuilding of Taris is to show that the republic does not give up, and that everything the Sith destroyed, can be rebuild. If the republic would make it, it would boost the morale in the republic.
So the Empire decides to crush the Republic's dreams by destroying all their effort, slaughtering the settlers, infect republic troops with the rakghoul plague and so on.

But is it worth it? Well for the Sith yes, but I think it's a waste of military ressources. Bombarding it from orbit, like Malak did, would be more effective, I guess.
