We live in NM and my husband just took an OTR truck driving job with an Oregon company. They will not accommodate NM withholding and say my husband needs to check exempt on the Oregon W4. How do I handle NM withholding and are they correct in stating for him to check exempt on the Oregon W4; and will this also keep us from having to file a nonresident for Oregon come time to file? We've never had this issue in the 20 years he's been driving.

A. There is no way to have NM tax withheld from his pay. You'll have to make quarterly estimated payments to NM. See https://www.tax.newmexico.gov/individuals/file-your-taxes-overview/estimated-payments/
You can prepare 2023 estimated tax payment vouchers in your 2022 TurboTax (TT) state software. I'm not specifically familiar with the NM program, but it's usually at the screen titled "A few things before we wrap up your state taxes", under "Other forms". It may be a screen "Do you want to pay NM estimated taxes for 2023".
