APPELLANT: John Macadlo
DOCKET NO.: 04-22439.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 18-03-318-035-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are John Macadlo, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto with the law firm of McCarthy Duffy LLP, Chicago, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of an 80-year-old, one and one-half story, single-family dwelling of frame construction containing 1,462 square feet of living area and located in Lyons Township, Cook County. Features of the home include one and one-half bath rooms, central air-conditioning, a full-finished basement and a three and one-half car detached garage.
The appellant, through counsel, submitted evidence before the Property Tax Appeal Board arguing unequal treatment in the assessment process of the improvement as the basis of the appeal. In support of this claim, the appellant submitted assessment data and descriptive information on four properties suggested as comparable to the subject. The appellant also submitted a one-page brief, photographs of the subject and the suggested comparables, a location map and a copy of the board of review's decision. Based on the appellant's documents, the four suggested comparables offered by the appellant consist of one-story or one and one-half story, single-family dwellings of frame construction with the same neighborhood code as the subject. The improvements range in size from 1,167 to 1,617 square feet of living area and range in age from 74 to 104 years. The comparables contain one or one and one-half bathrooms and a finished or unfinished basement. The improvement assessments range from $5.00 to $6.34 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" disclosing the subject's total assessment of $16,548. The subject's improvement assessment is $13,242 or $9.06 per
