APPELLANT: Jan Borowski
DOCKET NO.: 05-21978.001-R-1

The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Jan Borowski, the appellant, by attorney Michael E. Crane of Crane and Norcross, Chicago, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 29-year-old, three-story multi-family dwelling of masonry construction containing 6,500 square feet of living area with six full bathrooms. The subject is built on slab and located in Palatine Township, Cook County.
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. Based on the appellant's documents, the three suggested comparables consist of two-story or three-story, multi-family dwellings of masonry or frame and masonry construction. One of the comparables has the same neighborhood code as the subject. The improvements range in size from 6,372 to 6,840 square feet of living area and range in age from 12 to 26 years. The comparables contain six full bathrooms while one comparable has six additional half-baths. Two comparables have air-conditioning as well as a four-car garage. The improvement assessments range from $6.93 to $7.87 per square foot of living area. Based on the evidence submitted, the appellant requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
The board of review submitted its "Board of Review Notes on Appeal" disclosing the subject's total assessment of $57,904. The subject's improvement assessment is $55,812 or $8.59 per square foot of living area. In support of the assessment the board submitted property characteristic printouts and descriptive data on four properties suggested as comparable to the subject.
