It is not a problem for your state taxable wages to be higher than your federal.  This has to do with your pension savings plan at work.  This should not be an error.  If this is happening on a phone app, then use a computer instead.  If you still get the error:

Make sure you are using Chrome browser.
Delete the W2.
Sign out and clear all browsing data, then sign in again. 
Enter the W2 manually, do not import it.

Make sure all your entries are correct on the W-2 entry screen especially box 12 ... you may want to delete the W-2 and enter it again and see if that cures the issue.
