PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Leo J. Kaye
DOCKET NO.: 05-21631.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 09-27-115-051-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Leo J. Kaye, 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 43-year old, single-story, single-family dwelling of masonry construction containing 1,357 square feet of living area and a partial basement.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted for consideration information on four comparable properties described as single-story, masonry or frame and masonry dwellings that range in age from 49 to 57 years old. The comparables range from 1,230 to 1,631 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $3.56 to $14.55 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $18.35 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 single-story, masonry, single-family dwellings. Ages are 46 to 50 years and the dwellings range in size from 1,288 to 1,432 square feet of living area and the improvement assessments range from $18.41 to $21.20 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
After reviewing the record and considering the evidence, the Property Tax Appeal Board finds that it has jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of this appeal. The Board further finds a reduction in the subject's assessment is not warranted.
