PARCEL NO.: 04-17-113-005-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Timothy Burke, the appellant, by attorney Rusty A. Payton of the

The subject property consists of a 37-year old, two-story

living area with a partial, unfinished basement, a fireplace, and
a two car garage.
The appellant submitted evidence before the Property Tax Appeal
Board claiming unequal treatment in the assessment process as the

full basement and three comparables have partial basements. Two
comparables have central air conditioning. Their living areas

property has an improvement assessment of $15.68 per square foot.
