Tail lights are usually on the same fuse with interior lights and dash lights. That is so you will know when the fuse is blown. Brake lights are usually on a different circuit. If a fuse is blown, try to figure out the cause rather than just replacing the fuse.

What is the problem when head lights are on and the tail lights dont work but the brake lights work?

If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires.
