PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Aji Abraham
DOCKET NO.: 04-25439.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 07-24-304-074
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board (hereinafter PTAB) are Aji Abraham, the appellant, by Attorney Julie Realmuto with the law firm of McCarthy & Duffy in Chicago; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 15-year old, two-story, frame, townhouse containing 1,391 square feet of living area as well as two and one-half baths; one fireplace; and a two-car attached garage.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted limited information on four comparable properties for consideration. They are improved with a 15-year old, two-story, frame townhouse that range in size from 1,510 to 1,546 square feet of living area and in improvement assessments from $6.82 to $7.53 per square foot of living area. Amenities also include a fireplace, while photographs depict garage area. The subject's improvement assessment is $15.46 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 three comparable properties for consideration located on the same street, as is the subject. They are improved with a 15-year old, two-story, frame townhouse with 1,391 square feet of living area. The comparables range in improvement assessments from $15.47 to $15.54 per square foot of living area. Amenities include a full basement, one fireplace, and a two-car garage. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
