PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: John Kelly
DOCKET NO.: 04-27090.001-R-1, 05-24747.001-R-1 and
PARCEL NO.: 05-20-311-012
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board (hereinafter PTAB) are John Kelly, the appellant, by Attorney David C. Dunkin with the law firm of Arnstein & Lehr LLP in Chicago; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 26,049 square foot parcel of land containing a 48-year old, two-story, masonry, single-family residence. This improvement contains 4,191 square feet of living area, a full basement, five full and one half-baths, three fireplaces, and a two-car garage.
As a procedural matter, the PTAB finds that these appeals are within the same assessment triennial, involve common issues of law and fact and a consolidation of the appeals would not prejudice the rights of the parties. Therefore, under the Official Rules of the Property Tax Appeal Board, Section 1910.78, the PTAB hereby consolidates the above appeals without objection from the parties.
As to the merits of this appeal, the appellant argued via counsel that there was unequal treatment in the assessment process of the improvement as the basis of this appeal.
In support of the equity argument, the appellant submitted assessment data and descriptions for a total of five properties suggested as comparable to the subject. The properties are located within the subject's neighborhood, with two properties located on the same street as is the subject. They are improved with a two-story, single-family dwelling of frame and masonry or masonry exterior construction. The improvements range: in baths from three full to four full and one half-bath; in age from 10 to 54 years; in size from 4,111 to 4,727 square feet of living area; and in improvement assessments from $23.28 to $25.37 per square foot of living area. Amenities included basement area, one to three fireplaces, and a multi-car garage. Based upon this
