APPELLANT: Kurt and Crystal Schroder
DOCKET NO.: 04-23278.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 03-34-200-176-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Kurt and Crystal Schroder, the appellants, by attorney Rusty A.
Payton of the Law Offices of Rusty A. Payton, P.C., Chicago,

The subject property is a 43-year old, two-story masonry
townhouse containing 1,156 square feet of living area with a
full, unfinished basement and central air conditioning.

basis of the appeal. In support of the equity argument, the
appellants submitted a grid analysis detailing four suggested
comparable properties. On the appellant's map, two comparables
are located in the same tax block as the subject, and two are
located approximately one mile from the subject. The comparables
are two-story masonry townhouses that are 40 or 43 years old.
Two of the comparables have full basements, and two have
unfinished basements. One comparable has central air
conditioning, and one has a fireplace. The dwellings have living
areas that contain 1,148 to 1,180 square feet, and their

requested a reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
