PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Hugo Brandstetter
DOCKET NO.: 04-28451.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 14-33-411-002-0000
TOWNSHIP: North Chicago
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board (PTAB)
are Hugo Brandstetter, the appellant, by attorney David Bass of
the law firm of Thompson Coburn Fagel Haber, of Chicago, and the
Cook County Board of Review (board).
The subject property consists of 115-year-old, two-story, multi-family
residence of masonry construction containing 2,579 square
feet of living area. The subject features three full baths and a
basement. The appellant contends overvaluation and lack of
uniformity in the subject's assessment as the basis of the
appeal. The subject is located in North Chicago Township.
The appellant contends that the subject is 2,309 square feet of
living area. However, the appellant did not provide any
information to support this contention. Therefore, the PTAB
finds that for purposes of this appeal, the subject contains
2,579 square feet.
The appellant submitted a brief in support of the requested
reduction in assessed value. The appellant also submitted a
uniformity analysis of five suggested comparables. These
properties are two-story or three-story multi-family, masonry
construction properties with full basements and three full baths.
These properties range in age from 115 to 121 years. The square
footage of living areas range from 3,161 to 3,998. The
improvement assessments per square foot range from $16.37 to
$18.21. The subject is assessed at $22.40 per square foot.
On the basis of this evidence, the appellant requested a
reduction in the total assessment to $52,354.
