PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: David Lehmann
DOCKET NO.: 03-23858.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 14-29-409-037
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board (hereinafter PTAB) are David Lehmann, the appellant, by attorney Mitchell L. Klein with the law firm of Schiller, Klein & McElroy in Chicago and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of 4,125 square foot parcel of land containing a four-year old, three-story, masonry, single-family dwelling. The improvement contains 6,584 square feet of living area, six and two-half baths, two fireplaces, and air conditioning. The appellant, via counsel, argued that there was unequal treatment in the assessment process of the improvement as the basis of this appeal.
In support of the equity argument, the appellant submitted assessment data and descriptions of four properties suggested as comparable to the subject. Colored or black and white photographs of the subject property and the suggested comparables and a brief from the appellant's attorney were also submitted. The data in its entirety reflects that the properties are located within the subject's neighborhood and are improved with a two-story, masonry, single-family dwelling with between three and one-half and six and one-half baths. The improvements range: in age from seven to 12 years; in size from 5,120 to 5,699 square feet of living area; and in improvement assessments from $18.10 to $23.61 per square foot of living area. The properties have air conditioning and, for three properties, one or two fireplaces. Based upon this analysis, the appellant requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
