Going to the county Assesors Office should do the trick.

Consult the local building jurisdiction and obtain a TOPO (plat map) of the property in question. It should give you delineated lot lines and dimensions. Other than hiring a surveyor this will probably be the quickest and best way.

There is no "official" size, there are county records, which may be misleading, and current surveys, which often reveal mistakes made by other surveyors.

Your tax record will include what the assessor's office believes to be the size of your lot.

What are you going to do with the information, if I may ask?

I would start at the county and ask them if they have a plat. If you are looking for exact boundaries you would need to have a survey done.

You get an official survey.
