My employer withheld tax for Arkansas by mistake and didnt correct W2. I don't care about recovering the withholdings.Do I have an obligation to file a tax return in AR?

I work for a company where we need to fill a timesheet every day. By mistake, I have coded 5 hours to the state of Arkansas, where I have never been. My employer refused to correct my w2 form and some taxes were withheld for this state. It was not much, so I don't care about recovering the withholding taxes. Do I have an obligation to file a nonresident tax return in Arkansas?

No, if you did not have Arkansas source income (from working in Arkansas) you do not have to file if you do not want to get the incorrect withholding back.
