PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Joanna Sokolowski
DOCKET NO.: 04-25300.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 17-08-114-014-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Joanna Sokolowski, the appellant, by attorney Gregory Lafakis of
law firm of Liston & Lafakis, of Chicago, and the Cook County
Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a masonry construction, four-story,
six-unit, apartment building with a full basement
containing 6,972 square feet of living area constructed in 1878.
The subject is located in West Chicago Township.
The property in this appeal was the subject of an appeal before
the Property Tax Appeal Board for the prior year under Docket No.
03-26737.001-R-1. In that appeal, the Property Tax Appeal Board
reached a decision based upon the record as presented by the
parties. Pursuant to the Official Rules of the Property Tax
Appeal Board, evidence from both parties in support of their
positions was presented.
After reviewing the record and considering the evidence, the
Property Tax Appeal Board finds that it has jurisdiction over the
parties and the subject matter of this appeal. The Property Tax
Appeal Board further finds from its analysis that no new evidence
is presented in this appeal from that of the previous year's
appeal. Since no new evidence was presented, the Board finds
that the assessment as established in the prior year shall apply
to this appeal subject to the three year weighted average median
level of assessment in Cook County for residential property for
year 2004 of 9.99%. As such, a reduction in the subject's
assessment is warranted.
