PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: John Scavelli
DOCKET NO.: 06-23986.001-R-1
PARCEL NO.: 18-12-302-054-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
John Scavelli, the appellant, by attorney Rusty A. Payton of the
Law Offices of Rusty A. Payton, P.C., Chicago, Illinois; and the
Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property is a 44-year old, one-story style dwelling
of masonry construction containing 1,008 square feet of living
area with a full, unfinished basement.
The appellant’s appeal is based on unequal treatment in the
assessment process. The appellant submitted for consideration
four comparable properties described as one-story masonry
dwellings that are between 49 and 56 years old. One of the
comparables does not have a basement. The comparables contain
from 1,022 to 1,212 square feet of living area and have
improvement assessments ranging from $10.00 to $11.03 per square
foot. The subject’s improvement assessment is $13.41 per square
foot. Based on this evidence, the appellant requested a
reduction in the subject's improvement assessment.
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 four comparable properties
consisting of one-story masonry dwellings that are between 50 and
53 years old. Each comparable has a full, unfinished basement.
The dwellings contain from 1,001 to 1,102 square feet of living
area and have improvement assessments ranging from $13.41 to
$13.83 per square foot. 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
