PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Maureen Falcon
DOCKET NO.: 06-21521.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 08-12-420-004-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Maureen Falcon, the appellant, by attorney Julie Realmuto of McCarthy & Duffy, Chicago, Illinois; and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is improved with a 49-year old, one-story style dwelling of masonry construction containing 1,467 square feet of living area with a partial, unfinished basement, a fireplace, and a one and one-half car attached garage.

The comparable dwellings range in size from 1,349 to 1,500 square feet of living area. These properties have improvement assessments ranging from $10.40 to $11.69 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. The board of review presented descriptions and assessment information on three comparable properties consisting of one-story masonry dwellings that are either 48 or 50 years old. The dwellings range in size from 1,415 to 1,446 square feet of living area. These properties have improvement assessments ranging from $15.54 to $15.77 per square foot of living area. Based on this evidence, the board of review requested confirmation of the subject's assessment.
After reviewing the record and considering the evidence, the Property Tax Appeal Board finds that it has jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of this appeal. The Board further
