Yesterday morning we rejected a number of submission with code F*-994 and Error Message: Direct Deposit routing transit number is invalid or blank. We validate routing transit numbers against a table of valid numbers, however we experienced a short period of time where that table look up was failing. The issue was resolved by mid-morning. You should resubmit any returns rejected with this code yesterday morning.
