PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Andrew Sternal
DOCKET NO.: 04-22096.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 02-27-103-012-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Andrew Sternal, 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 28-year old, 2-story dwelling of frame construction containing 2,706 square feet of living area with a full unfinished basement, central air conditioning, a fireplace and a two-car attached garage.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. In support of this argument the appellant submitted information on four comparable properties described as two-story frame dwellings that range in age from 13 to 21 years old for consideration. The comparables range in size from 2,764 to 3,346 square feet of living area. Each comparable has a basement and a fireplace. Three of the comparables have central air conditioning. These comparables have improvement assessments ranging from $10.58 to $10.87 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $13.11 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 four comparable properties consisting of two-story frame dwellings that are either 24 or 25 years old. The dwellings range in size from 2,574 to 2,886 square feet of living area. Each comparable has a full unfinished basement, central air conditioning, a fireplace and a two-car garage. These comparables have improvement assessments ranging from $12.84 to $13.32 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
