PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Anthony Dijohn
DOCKET NO.: 05-21660.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 09-34-212-014-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Anthony Dijohn, 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 one-year old, two-story style dwelling of masonry construction containing 3,011 square feet of living area with a full, unfinished basement, two and one-half baths, air conditioning, a fireplace and a two-car garage.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the assessment process. The appellant submitted information on four one-year old comparable properties described two-story frame and masonry or frame and masonry dwellings for consideration. Photographs of the subject and the comparables were also submitted. Located in the same assessment neighborhood as the subject, the comparables contain from 2,840 to 3,761 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $5.82 to $9.91 per square foot of living area. The subject's improvement assessment is $22.65 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 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 one-year old two-story masonry dwellings. The dwellings are located in the same assessment neighborhood as the subject. The dwellings range in size from 2,659 to 3,184 square feet of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $22.94 to $24.42 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
