Error Code 0019 may apply.  The IRS describes it as::
The routing transit number (RTN) is invalid. The RTN must meet these conditions to be valid: must be 9 numeric digits long; and, the first two positions must be 01 through 12 OR 21 through 32. The depositor account number (DAN) is invalid. The DAN must meet these conditions to be valid: must be alphanumeric (i.e., numbers, letters, and hyphens only); cannot be greater than 17 characters in length; and must not equal all zeros. When the DAN has an entry, or if the RTN has an entry, the checking account box must be checked or the savings account box must be checked.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
