I don’t understand how I owe state taxes. I always got a refund.

I believe something was done wrong on my state taxes

We can’t see your return. Compare with the previous year line by line to see the difference.

No one else can see your tax return so we can only offer guesses.   First check the amounts you entered from any W-2 boxes 16 and 17 and make sure you entered them correctly.  If you imported or took a photo of your W-2 make sure the boxes went in correctly and match the actual W-2 that you have.   Look for misplaced decimals or extra zeros and typos.   Or...did you lose some state credit you have been receiving in past years?  Print out a copy of your 2021 state return and lay it side by side with a copy of the 2022 state return to see what is different.
