Unhappy Confused about Independant Contractor Tax Situation

So, I have a client that I want to perform some technical services for as an independent contractor. I am a resident of Oregon, and will be performing all work at this client's Oregon location. They told me that I have to fill out a California Form 590 regarding California income tax (the client's HQ is in California).

Since non of the work is being done in California, and I don't reside there, why would I have to send anything to CA for tax purposes? Is my client mistaken? I feel like if I fill this out, they will be obligated to withhold CA income tax from my payments, which makes no sense to me.

Help Appreciated!

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.
