Why am I getting an 'RoutingTransitNumber' element is invalid error when I try to file?

Overview

You are clicking File Now and the error 'RoutingTransitNumber' element is invalid appears:

The value 'XXXXXXX' is invalid according to its datatype 'RoutingTransitNumberType' - The Pattern constraint failed. 

Environment

TrustFile

Resolution

  • Correct the routing number in your banking information: Set up TrustFile defaults
    • If you do not have correct banking information, and want to pay the state directly using our service to file the return, and NOT make a payment using TrustFile, change the payment setting:
    • Go to the State settings > Check I remit directly to the state
