APPELLANT: Terry Hanson
DOCKET NO.: 06-24743.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 14-20-319-014-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Terry Hanson, the appellant, by attorney Ronald G. Glosniak with the law firm of Leff, Cohen & Winkler, LTD. in Chicago, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 118-year-old, one and one-half story, single-family dwelling of masonry construction containing 2,608 square feet of living area and located in Lake View Township, Cook County. Features of the residence include two full bathrooms, a partial-finished basement and a one 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 three properties suggested as comparable to the subject. The appellant also submitted a four-page brief, photographs and property printouts for the subject and the suggested comparables as well as a copy of the board of review's decision. Based on the appellant's documents, the three suggested comparables consist of one-story or one and one-half story, single-family dwellings of masonry or frame construction located within close proximity to the subject. The improvements range in size from 2,024 to 3,744 square feet of living area and range in age from 103 to 118 years. The comparables contain two full bathrooms, a partial-unfinished basement and a two-car detached garage. The improvement assessments range from $21.78 to $26.46 per square foot of living area. Based on the evidence submitted, 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 $97,707.
