Do You Have to Give Your Social Security Number, Credit Card Number, or Bank Account Number on a Rental Application?

No. This is not a requirement in any state, though many rental applications ask for this information. If a tenant feels uncomfortable providing this information, they can leave those fields blank and/or ask for an explanation of why the information is necessary.
