PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Edward Salomon
DOCKET NO.: 04-22748.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 14-28-303-053
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board
(hereinafter PTAB) are Edward Salomon, the appellant, by Attorney
Brian Maher with the law firm of Weis DuBrock & Doody in Chicago;
and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of 3,650 square foot parcel
improved with two multi-family dwellings. Dwelling #1 contained
a 100-year old, three-story, masonry, multi-family improvement
with 3,405 square feet of living area, three bathrooms, a full
basement and central air conditioning. Dwelling #2 contained a
115-year old, two-story, masonry improvement with 1,350 square
feet of living area as well as a full basement and two bathrooms.
The appellant argued that there was unequal treatment in the
assessment process of the improvement identified as dwelling #1
as the basis of this appeal. The assessment of dwelling #2 is
not at issue.
The appellant's pleadings included data and descriptions of four
suggested comparables located within a two-block radius of the
subject. These properties are improved with a two-story or
three-story, multi-family dwelling of frame, masonry or frame and
masonry exterior construction and a full basement. They range:
in bathrooms from three to four; in age from 110 to 115 years;
and in size from 3,644 to 4,179 square feet of living area. The
improvement assessments range from $10.73 to $14.32 per square
foot. On the basis of this comparison, the appellant's attorney
requested an assessment reduction for dwelling #1.
The board of review submitted "Board of Review Notes on Appeal"
wherein the board's final assessment decision was presented
reflecting a total improvement assessment for both dwellings
