The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Robert Sutton, the appellant, by attorney Rusty Payton of the Law Offices of Rusty Payton, P.C., Chicago, Illinois; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of an 18-year old, multi-level style dwelling of frame and masonry construction containing 1,680 square feet of living area with a partial, finished basement, central air conditioning, one fireplace and a three and one-half car garage.
The appellant submitted evidence before the Property Tax Appeal Board claiming unequal treatment in the assessment process as the basis of the appeal. In support of the equity argument, the appellant submitted a grid analysis detailing four suggested comparable properties. The comparables are multi-level masonry or frame and masonry dwellings that are from 34 to 44 years old. The comparables contain from 1,582 to 1,776 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $14.61 to $22.20 per square foot. The subject property has an improvement assessment of $23.57 per square foot. Based on this evidence, the appellant requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
The board of review submitted its "Board of Review Notes on Appeal" wherein the subject's final assessment was disclosed. In support of the subject's assessment, the board of review offered the property characteristic sheets and a spreadsheet detailing four suggested comparable properties. The comparable properties consist of multi-level frame, masonry or frame and masonry dwellings that are between 22 and 45 years old. The dwellings contain from 992 to 1,397 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $23.57 to $35.77 per square foot. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
