PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Paul Rivera
DOCKET NO.: 04-26435.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 17-06-216-032-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Paul Rivera, the appellant, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is a 16-year old, two-story style multi-family
dwelling of frame construction containing 2,168 square
feet of living area. The building contains two apartments and
features central air conditioning, a full unfinished basement,
and a two-car detached garage. The property is located in
Chicago, West Township, Cook County, Illinois.
The appellant's appeal is based on unequal treatment in the
assessment process; no dispute was raised with regard to the
subject's land assessment. The appellant submitted a grid
analysis along with property characteristic sheets for four
comparable properties located on the same block as the subject.
The properties are one one and one-half-story and three two-story
masonry multi-family dwellings that are between 95 and 130 years
old. Each dwelling contains two apartments. One property has a
concrete slab foundation and three have full basements, one of
which has been finished as an apartment. One of the properties
also has a full attic with living area. None of the comparables
have central air conditioning; two of the comparables include one
or two-car garages. The properties contain from 2,100 to 2,784
square feet of living area and have improvement assessments
ranging from $10.59 to $14.13 per square foot of living area.
The subject's improvement assessment is $18.85 per square foot of
living area. Based on this evidence, the appellant requested a
reduction in the subject's improvement assessment to $27,110 or
$12.50 per square foot of living area.
The board of review submitted its "Board of Review Notes on
Appeal" wherein the subject's final assessment was disclosed. In
support of the current assessment, the board of review presented
