Why does the listing info for a property show a lot size of 22 acres and the public record shows a lot size of 10.50 acres? Why the discrepancy?

The difference can be due to a variety of reason.It could be that the listing is a combination of 2 parcels, yet the description is useing only one of the property ID numbers for the tax card. There is no simple answer without knowing more information. Sometimes on large acreage, the land was only sold by the boundary (no survey) but when the county does it's own calculation for tax purposes they do not agree with the deeded acreage, and these 2 numbers can be different.
If you need assistance in the area I am inJackson County, and could help you find a property if you are looking.
