My guess would be somewhere along the wires.

You have a short. Disconnect the tail lights and you will probably find corrosion on one of the connectors.

You can use a bulb and a couple wires in place of the fuse to figure out where the short is. The bulb will dim when you find the short. It will save you a bunch of fuses and with a long enough wire you can work on it and look at the light at the same time.
