PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Robert Davis
DOCKET NO.: 04-26284.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 05-28-400-011-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board (PTAB)
are Robert Davis, the appellant, by attorney Mitchell L. Klein of
Schiller, Klein & McElroy, P.C., Chicago, and the Cook County
Board of Review (board of review or the board).
The subject property consists of a 79-year-old, two-story,
single-family dwelling of masonry construction containing 2,894
square feet of living area and located in New Trier Township,
Cook County. Features of the residence include three full
bathrooms, a full-finished basement, a fireplace, air-conditioning
and a two-car detached garage.
The PTAB's initial decision in this matter was based upon the
written evidence and was duly rescinded because the appellant did
not waive its right to a hearing. Therefore, the PTAB scheduled
this matter for a full evidentiary hearing.
The appellant, through counsel, appeared before the PTAB arguing
unequal treatment in the assessment process of the improvement as
the basis of the appeal. In support of this claim, the appellant
submitted assessment data and descriptive information on four
properties suggested as comparable to the subject. The appellant
also submitted a one-page brief, a copy of a plat map and
photographs of the subject and the suggested comparables. Based
on the appellant's documents, the four suggested comparables
consist of two-story, single-family dwellings of masonry or frame
and masonry construction located within three blocks of the
subject. The improvements range in size from 2,906 to 3,564
square feet of living area and range in age from 68 to 79 years.
The comparables contain from two to three and one-half bathrooms,
