APPELLANT: David Jacobson
DOCKET NO.: 04-27310.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 05-07-116-011
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are David Jacobson, the appellant, by attorney William Seitz with the law firm of Fisk Kart Katz and Regan in Chicago and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 10,679 square foot parcel of land improved with an 81-year old, two-story, frame, single-family dwelling containing 4,119 square feet of living area, two and one-half baths, a fireplace, air conditioning, and a full, finished basement. The appellant argued unequal treatment in the assessment process as the basis of the appeal.

Basement information was not provided.

Based on this evidence, the appellant requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.

The properties consist of two-story, frame, single-family dwellings with between three and one-half baths, one fireplace, a partial or full basement, and, for two properties, air conditioning. The properties range: in age from 69 to 79 years; in size from 3,158 to 4,381 square feet of living area; and in improvement assessments from $22.18 to $22.31 per
