Features of the residence include four and one-half bathrooms, a full-finished basement, air-conditioning, a fireplace and a three-car attached garage.
The appellant, through counsel, submitted evidence before the Property Tax Appeal Board arguing unequal treatment in the assessment process of the improvement as the basis of the appeal. In support of this claim, the appellant submitted assessment data and descriptive information on three properties suggested as comparable to the subject. The appellant also submitted a two-page brief, photographs and property characteristic printouts for the subject and the suggested comparables as well as a copy of the board of review's decision. Based on the appellant's documents, the three suggested comparables consist of one-story, one and one-half story or two-story, single-family dwellings of frame, masonry or frame and masonry construction with the same neighborhood code as the subject. The improvements range in size from 2,546 to 7,384 square feet of living area and range in age from 20 to 27 years. The comparables contain two and one-half or three and one-half bathrooms, a finished or unfinished basement, a fireplace and a multi-car garage. Two comparables contain air-conditioning. The improvement assessments range from $6.19 to $11.95 per square foot of living area. Based on the evidence submitted, the appellant requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
