That might be a requirement of certain exchanges. This is only asked for your safety and to make sure you are a genuine buyer/seller.
By providing proof you are marking yourself as a trustworthy user.

Attempted to get some bitcoins at a site and they requested a government provided ID and confirmation of address. is it truly important to give confirmation and address?
