PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Frank Miller
DOCKET NO.: 06-24191.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 18-09-107-007-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Frank Miller, the appellant, by attorney Rusty A. Payton of the
Law Offices of Rusty A. Payton, P.C., Chicago, Illinois; and the
Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is a 57-year old, one and one-half story
style dwelling of frame and masonry construction containing 1,670

of living area and have improvement assessments ranging from
$19.07 to $20.18 per square foot. Based on this evidence, the
