Why must I provide my social security number?

Even though social security numbers are private information, under Minnesota Statute 273.123, Subdivision. 13, they must be provided before a homestead can be granted. Social Security numbers will be used with the help of the Department of Revenue to determine if owners or relatives of owners have applied for more than one homestead.
