PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Robert Baumgarten
DOCKET NO.: 05-26979.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 05-17-312-038-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are Robert Baumgarten, the appellant, by attorney Edward P. Larkin of Park Ridge, and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property consists of a 42-year-old, one-story, single-family dwelling of masonry construction containing 4,593 square feet of living area and located in New Trier Township, Cook County. Features of the residence include three and one-half bathrooms, a full-unfinished basement, air-conditioning, two fireplaces and a two and one-half car attached garage.
The property in this appeal was the subject of an appeal before the Property Tax Appeal Board for the prior year under Docket No. 04-27936.001-R-1. In that appeal, the Property Tax Appeal Board reached a decision based upon equity and the weight of the evidence in the record as presented by the parties to the appeal. Pursuant to the Official Rules of the Property Tax Appeal Board, evidence from both parties in support of their respective opinions of the subject's market value as of the assessment date or equity of the assessment was requested.
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 Property Tax Appeal Board finds from its analysis of the record that the evidence in this appeal is substantially the same as that of the prior year. Since no new evidence was presented to warrant a change from the previous year's decision, the Board finds that the assessment as established in the prior year's appeal is appropriate.
