I can't speak for California, but as a long-time Maryland resident I can attest that Maryland is very aggressive in going after income, wherever earned. Given that she's planning to retain her MD driver's license and voting registration, I can assure you that MD will regard her as one of its residents, and will want to tax her income. Depending on how CA feels about it, she may wind up paying taxes in both places. (She would then get "credit" in MD for paying CA taxes, so that's some consolation.)
