PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Paul Easton
DOCKET NO.: 05-21258.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 10-22-409-040-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Paul Easton, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto with the law firm of McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 54-year-old, one-story style dwelling of masonry construction containing 1,113 square feet of living area with one full bathroom, a full-unfinished basement, air-conditioning and a two-car detached garage.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted information on four comparable properties described as one-story masonry dwellings that are from 41 and 75 years old for consideration. The comparables contain from 1,015 to 1,366 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $10.53 to $13.38 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $21,169 or $19.02 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 consisting of one-story, masonry dwellings that range in age from 50 to 54 years. The comparables have the same classification and neighborhood codes as the subject property. The dwellings range in size from 1,049 to 1,120 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $20.20 to $20.59 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
