Do I need to file an Oklahoma nonresident return since tax paid was $0 and tax owed is $0?

I had rental income from Oklahoma, but after deducting rental expenses on the federal return, I have a net loss so do not owe any taxes on this money. I did not reside in OK for any part of 2012.

    if you had gross  income  from a state as a non-resident , that state would need you to file a return covering the instate  income, even if the net income is a  loss.    Note that not all states may  allow the  passive activity loss  that you get to offset your ordinary income on federal return. Even the deprciation schedule may be difefrent  in some states. So you need to file

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
