I am trying to retrieve a Managed Metadata column from a SharePoint list using a REST call. The column/field name is Department. I found this site, https://threewill.com/pulling-managed-metadata-values-via-rest/ and I tried the query with TaxCatchAll, but it gives me the below error:

"The field 'TaxCatchAll' is not supported in query. The lookup list is in another web."

_api/web/lists/getbytitle('ListName')/items?$select=*,TaxCatchAll/Department&$filter=TaxCatchAll/Department eq 'ListName'&$expand=TaxCatchAll";

That is the only source I can find, is there another way to go about this or is it not possible to GET?

Retrieving TaxCatchAll column can help us get metadata id and term label.

Try to use this:

  _api/web/lists/getbytitle('ListName')/items?$select=Department,TaxCatchAll/ID,TaxCatchAll/Term&$filter=Department eq 'ListName'&$expand=TaxCatchAll
