PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Tim Dixon
DOCKET NO.: 05-26340.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 22-25-105-001-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Tim Dixon, 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 is improved with a 14-year old, two-story style dwelling of masonry construction containing 5,674 square feet of living area with a full, finished basement, central air conditioning, three fireplaces, and a three-car attached garage.
The appellant’s appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted information on three comparable properties described as two-story masonry or frame and masonry dwellings that range in age from 12 to 25 years old. The comparable dwellings range in size from 5,746 to 6,723 square feet of living area. Each comparable has a basement; two have central air conditioning; and two have a fireplace. The comparables have improvement assessments ranging from $8.94 to $10.73 per square foot of living area. The subject’s improvement assessment is $12.82 per square foot of living area. 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. The board of review presented descriptions and assessment information on three comparable properties consisting of two-story masonry or frame and masonry dwellings that range in age from four to 16 years old. The dwellings range in size from 5,186 to 6,058 square feet of living area. Features include a basement, central air conditioning, two fireplaces, and an attached garage, either three or four-car. These properties have improvement assessments ranging from $12.93 to $15.19 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
