PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Shirley Johnson
DOCKET NO.: 05-26263.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 29-10-401-029-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Shirley Johnson, 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 13-year old, multi-level frame construction containing 1,298 square feet of living area with a partial, finished basement, central air conditioning, a fireplace, and a two-car detached garage.
The appellant’s appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted information on three comparable properties described as multi-level frame or masonry dwellings that are either 37 or 38 years old. The comparable dwellings range in size from 1,470 to 1,513 square feet of living area. Each comparable has a partial basement and central air conditioning, and one has a fireplace. Based on photographic evidence, each comparable has a two-car attached garage. The properties have improvement assessments ranging from $6.29 to $8.19 per square foot of living area. The subject’s improvement assessment is $10.63 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 two comparable properties consisting of multi-level frame or frame and masonry dwellings that are 13 or 31 years old. The dwellings contain 1,075 and 1,254 square feet of living area. Each comparable has a partial, finished basement, central air conditioning, and a two or two and one-half car detached garage, and one has a fireplace. These properties have improvement assessments of $10.65 and $10.88 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
