Maybe you had a LOT of other income...

But if not that...then go back to the Federal Wages&Incoem section, and edit any income forms you put in there.

An unexpectedly large state taxes owed indicates that you mis-entered your income on the state income lines on some form. 

 An example would be double-keying a digit in boxes 15-to-17 on a W-2 form..... $5040...but you double-hit the zero and entered 50400 instead.
