It depends. It sounds like the State of Hawaii is asking you to file even though you have no taxable income to report. My suggestion is to:

  1. Log into Turbo Tax

  2. Go to federal>income and expenses>all income>>show more 
  3. Less Common Income> Start
  4. Miscellaneous Income,>start
  5. Other reportable income>start
  6. Next screen asks Any Other Taxable Income>yes
  7. The next screen will allow you to report the income with a brief explanation. i would suggest adding $1 of income in this section.
  8. Also if you have social security or disability income, i would suggest that you also add this into the return.
  9. After you enter this into your federal return, select state>add a state>Hawaii
  10. The information you entered will populate into the Hawaii return
