Personal Loan

I recently applied for A Tax Loan Mid Cities offered to help member whom owe on Taxes. The loan was denied because I had a negative credit report, which has recently declined from almost 700 to 630 because I am making payment to Franchise and Federal Taxes. The total is $4,000. So I thought if I paid the taxes I would have $400.00 to pay other bills. Is it not understood if we owe taxes you know that your credit isn't perfect? It's like they dangle a carrot in front of your face but you will never get it.
