When an agent lists a property and inputs it into the MLS database, the public records automatically pull in information like square footage, taxes, acreage, etc. In general, we do not question it unless it appears obviously incorrect. I recently listed a property that automatically pulled in the acreage as 1.83 acres... while the tax map showed it as .83 acres. I notified the seller who learned the assessor had the acreage incorrect on file thereby prompting the seller to ask for a reassessment.. which she got... with a retroactive lower tax bill. Moral of the story: Not all public records are correct.
All the best,
