PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Michael Tarpey
DOCKET NO.: 06-00934.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 07/1143
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Michael Tarpey, the appellant, and the Rock Island County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 90-year old, one-story dwelling of frame/stucco construction containing 1,633 square feet of living area. Features of the dwelling include central air conditioning, a fireplace, a full basement of which 120 square feet have been finished, and a two-car garage of 400 square feet of building area. The dwelling also has an unfinished attic of 817 square feet of building area and an enclosed frame porch of 160 square feet. The property is located in Moline, South Moline Township, Illinois.
The appellant appeared before the Property Tax Appeal Board contending unequal treatment in the assessment process as to the improvement. No dispute was raised concerning the land assessment.
In support of the inequity argument, the appellant submitted a grid analysis along with property record cards and color photographs of four suggested comparable properties said to be located within a half block of the subject property; three of the comparables are located on the same street as the subject. The comparables were described as two one-story and two one-and-one-half-story frame or masonry dwellings that were either 66 or 76 years old. Features of the comparables include central air conditioning, a fireplace, basements ranging from 1,158 to 1,550 square feet of building area, and detached garages ranging in size from 299 to 672 square feet of building area. Two comparables also have decks and one comparable, according to the property record card, has an open frame porch of 310 square feet. The comparables range in size from 1,873 to 2,093 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $29,775 to $32,858 or from $15.54 to $16.51 per square foot of living
