Default PayPal requesting Tax Identification for Payment

So I received an invoice from a supplier for payment. I input all the required information but when I click submit payment it goes to another page asking for tax identification number.

Has anyone experienced this? It basically said something like, due to high amount of purchasing it is required by government to obtain a Tax ID from you.

The account is not limited, and I have bought about $8000 or so on it this month.

Yea....you're moving a lot of money around and they need to know who you are. I'm assuming this is coming right out of your bank account.

Nope, from attached credit card for the most part.

I thought this rule applied to receiving money only. Didn't know they request tax information for buying. Interesting

Definitely PayPal. I didn't log in from a link; I opened a brand new browser and typed in address. I wish I had captured a screenshot but it's too late now, the invoice was canceled.

If it is from an overseas supplier I could see this. I know myself included many moons ago had issues because I sent to many WU payments to suppliers overseas at the time.
