Angry Barclays asking for IRS Form 4506T

I recently applied for the Arrival +. Previously had the card, then downgraded to the no-fee in 2015 and cancelled it 14 months ago. Received a letter from Barclays saying they needed to verify my stated income (mid-6 figures) and needed to send them an IRS Form 4506T, which allows them to have access to all my tax returns. Credit score is 820+, perfect payment history. When I called to ask why they needed my income tax returns, they said it was to verify my identity. I am very offended by this invasive request and am considering withdrawing my application instead of providing them with access to my tax returns.
Has anybody else received a request like this? The person I spoke to said it was "a new policy" for certain applications but could/would not provide any more information.
