PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Val Hechler
DOCKET NO.: 05-23988.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 05-30-201-050-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Val Hechler, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto with the law firm of McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 44-year-old, one-story style dwelling of frame and masonry construction containing 2,650 square feet of living area with three full bathrooms, a partial-unfinished basement, two fireplaces and a two-car garage.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted information on four comparable properties described as one-story, frame and masonry dwellings with the same neighborhood code as the subject for consideration. The comparables range in size from 2,052 to 2,882 square feet of living area and range in age from 46 to 53 years. They have improvement assessments ranging from $12.48 to $14.71 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $61,619 or $23.25 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 one-story, 44 or 48-year-old, masonry or frame and masonry dwellings with the same classification and neighborhood codes as the subject property. The dwellings range in size from 2,262 to 2,723 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $25.12 to $26.34 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
