There is no waiver. That is the cost to file a state return using the Free Edition. The federal return is free but state is additional. The free state promotion for that version ended on March 15th, 2018 at 11:59pm PST. See here Absolute Zero (which includes a free state return) has ended
However, you may be able to use the Freedom Edition (completely different from Free Edition) instead; if you qualify. There are no upgrades and state is free with this version; if you qualify to use it.
