COUNTY lookup by valid street address

I am looking for a solid WebService API method that will allow me to submit an http request with a pre-validated US Street/City/State/Zip address and return COUNTY in xml or json about 200 times per work day.It looks like the US Census API may do it? Is the data current enough? What might a request look like? Many thanks in advance.

Campaign: Using Data

Zip/County/City Radius Tool

We are trying to create a tool where a user would:

1) Enter in their "home" zip code

2) Enter in a radius in miles

3) Hit an "Update" button.

 

Once the user hit the Update button, the screen would show all zip codes, all cities and all counties within the specified number of miles from the home zip code. Can these Census tools be used to create such a system?

Is it possible to use the API to fetch all tracts within a state? I tried the following request, but failed:

Is the population data available for all counties for 2013?

http://api.census.gov/data/2013/acs1/profile?get=DP05_0001E,NAME&for=county:*

 

While using the link above, I get the data for approx 800 counties, but there are more than 3000 counties in the country. Is the data available for all counties? If yes, how do I get the data?
