Almost all of them. They are required to know your tax information so they can report your earnings. I have provided SS# to over 150 companies between 2010 and now with no problems. If you object to providing a SS#, you could always get a TIN. I just use my SS#, but I have heard the TIN is easy to get.

Flash and many other wise sages have posted extremely useful information to help new shoppers understand taxes and other issues. Welcome to the forum!
