Cannot see inventory items tax rate

I am referring to https://docs.clover.com/reference/inventorycreateitem

I sent a POST request with the following body to the https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/v3/merchants/{mId}/items endpoint

{
  "taxRates": [
    {
      "id": "G4DB1EF691SG8",
    }
  ],
  "code": "72527273070",
  "hidden": "false",
  "available": "true",
  "autoManage": "false",
  "price": 2500,
  "sku": "TSH-LOG",
  "defaultTaxRates": "false",
  "cost": 1000,
  "unitName": "null",
  "priceType": "FIXED",
  "alternateName": "Logo Tee",
  "isRevenue": true,
  "name": "Logo T-Shirt",
  "colorCode": "#ffffffff",
  "itemGroup": {
    "id": "JBBHPG39V4TRT"
  }
}

However if I "GET" the new item and expand it with the "taxRates" query param, it returns an empty taxRate.

{
  "id": "65YBXP3KHY09A",
  "hidden": false,
  "available": true,
  "autoManage": false,
  "name": "Logo T-Shirt",
  "alternateName": "Logo Tee",
  "code": "72527273070",
  "sku": "TSH-LOG",
  "price": 2500,
  "priceType": "FIXED",
  "defaultTaxRates": false,
  "unitName": "null",
  "cost": 1000,
  "isRevenue": true,
  "stockCount": 0,
  "taxRates": {
    "elements": []
  },
  "modifiedTime": 1659734806000,
  "colorCode": "#ffffffff"
}

However this is not the case when I expand "itemGroup"

{
  "id": "65YBXP3KHY09A",
  "hidden": false,
  "available": true,
  "autoManage": false,
  "name": "Logo T-Shirt",
  "alternateName": "Logo Tee",
  "code": "72527273070",
  "sku": "TSH-LOG",
  "price": 2500,
  "priceType": "FIXED",
  "defaultTaxRates": false,
  "unitName": "null",
  "cost": 1000,
  "isRevenue": true,
  "stockCount": 0,
  "itemStock": {
    "item": {
      "id": "65YBXP3KHY09A"
    },
    "stockCount": 1000,
    "quantity": 1000,
    "modifiedTime": 1659048479000
  },
  "modifiedTime": 1659734806000,
  "colorCode": "#ffffffff"
}

Are some body params just not working?

Items can be associated with a Tax Rate using the appropriate endpoint

/v3/merchants/{mid}/tax_rates/{taxId}

Thanks, I know that endpoint works. I was just wondering why the https://docs.clover.com/reference/inventorycreateitem endpoint has taxRates as a body param, even though it doesn't work.

You can view item associations, eg. tax_rates, modifiers, etc when you expand the params in a GET call but must be set using the appropriate endpoint. The Tax Rate can not be set when creating an item in one POST.

You have to create the item, then associate it with the tax_rate after the item is created using the taxId and itemId.
