I assume that you are a full year resident of Oregon, then you do not need to file form 590;you do not need to report the income that you earn in Oregon to CA. You, as a full year resident of Oregon, need to file form 40 to report your income that you earn in Oregon to Oregon, Not to CA The location of the client’s HQ has nothing to do with the CA tax return.
You are correct as mentioned above.
Correct you need to let yur client know it.
