PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: John McLaughlin
DOCKET NO.: 06-22864.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 03-30-306-011-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
John McLaughlin, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto of
McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 41-year old, two-story
dwelling of frame construction containing 2,016 square feet of
living area with a full unfinished basement, central air
conditioning, a fireplace 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 two-story frame dwellings that
range in age from 51 to 62 years old for consideration. The
comparables range in size from 2,056 to 2,325 square feet of
living area and have improvement assessments ranging from $9.71
to $10.60 per square foot of living area. The subject's
improvement assessment is $27,484 or $13.63 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 two-story
frame dwellings that range in age from 37 to 41 years old.
The dwellings have the same classification and neighborhood codes
as the subject property. The dwellings range in size from 2,020
to 2,282 square feet of living area and have improvement
assessments ranging from $14.72 to $15.32 per square foot of
living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review
requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
