It is a Massachusetts programming requirement.  The programming requirements of Massachusetts require the system to report all income as taxable to MA that is listed on the state lines.  You can (and did) override this correctly (so you don't pay tax on double the income), however, Massachusetts requires these returns to be mailed in.  

Remember, though, that you do have an extra day or 2 in Massachusetts because of Patriot Day to get the return filed.
