PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Robert Campin
DOCKET NO.: 04-23390.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 32-06-209-029-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Robert Campin, 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 48-year old, two-story dwelling of frame and masonry construction containing 1,720 square feet of living area. Features of the home include a full basement with a finished recreation room, central air conditioning and a two-car detached garage.

These properties have improvement assessments ranging from $5.67 to $5.81 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is of $11,436 or $6.65 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 presented descriptions and assessment information on three comparable properties consisting of two-story frame and masonry dwellings that were either 49 or 50 years old. The dwellings contained either 1,652 or 1,710 square feet of living area.
