PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Charles Linkenheld, Jr.
DOCKET NO.: 04-25413.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 07-29-407-047-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Charles Linkenheld, Jr., the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto of McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago, Illinois; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 37-year old, one-story style dwelling of frame and masonry construction containing 1,723 square feet of living area with central air conditioning, two fireplaces and a two-car attached garage.

In support of this argument the appellant submitted copies of photographs and assessment information on six comparable properties. The photographs depict the subject as being a raised ranch style dwelling while the comparables are depicted as one-story homes. The first four comparables were described as one-story frame or fame and masonry dwellings that are from 36 to 42 years old. Two of the comparables have central air conditioning and three have fireplaces. The appellant provided limited information on the two remaining comparables such as property index number, classification code, neighborhood code, assessments, living are and building assessment per square foot. The six comparables ranged in size from 1,498 to 1,797 square feet and had improvement assessments ranging from $10.37 to $10.89 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $12.97 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 dwellings have the same classification and neighborhood
