Spec Tax - Why is SIN needed?

Why is SIN needed?

I question why the provincial government is asking for our social insurance numbers for the opt-out of the speculation tax. Our SIN is to be closely guarded.

I wrote an email to the speculation tax office, asking why I can pay property taxes every year without providing my SIN, about the security clearance of the temporary workers who will have access to it, and what safeguards are in place. I got no response.

We should all be concerned.
