PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Walter Mc Neely
DOCKET NO.: 06-22758.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 02-21-107-001-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Walter Mc Neely, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto of McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago, Illinois; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 35-year old, two-story style dwelling of frame and masonry exterior construction containing 2,498 square feet of living area with a partial, finished basement, central air conditioning, one fireplace and a two-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 two-story frame and masonry dwellings that are from 28 to 35 years old. The comparables contain from 2,618 to 2,724 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $8.87 to $9.51 per square foot. The subject property has an improvement assessment of $12.21 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 three suggested comparable properties. The comparable properties consist of two-story frame and masonry dwellings that are 33 years old. The dwellings contain from 2,620 to 2,680 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $12.25 to $12.61 per square foot. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
