I am getting Error 36 "Constraint.SalesTaxRegion.Invalid" as below for my AddItem call. What is the problem?

Detailed Description

CAUSE

   The possible cause for this error is

   -  The HTTP Header X-EBAY-API-SITEID is set to 1, an invalid SiteID, for the AddItem request in question.

 

  RESOLUTION 

     To work around this problem, check of the following suggestion: 

  -  Check the X-EBAY-API-SITEID  HTTP Header against the eBay Site IDs table for the API request and make sure the value is valid.

 

 NOTE

  -  Not sending API request to an invalid SiteID like 1 can help you avoid problems from errors or unexpected behaviors.
