Filed wrong state

A resident of NH and worked a week near the border of MA (in NH).  Worked a week during school vacation.  Didn't realized until after they accepted the return that I had mistakenly filed a return for MA (nothing due or returned).   What should I do to correct situation. bottom line is, I had no earnings in MA.

You don't need to do anything.  You did file the return without having to do so, but the return is not incorrect.  Since you don't owe anything to Massachusetts, nor are claiming a refund, you can leave everything as is.  You would only need to file an amended return if something you originally filed was wrong.  In this case, it wasn't wrong, it just wasn't necessary.
