FISHER, J.

Kooshtard Property VIII, LLC (Kooshtard) challenges the final determination of the Indiana Board of Tax Review (Indiana Board) affirming the 2002 assessment of its real property. Kooshtard presents one issue on appeal, which the Court restates as: whether the Indiana Board erred in affirming the application of only one negative influence factor of 50% to Kooshtard’s land.

Conclusion (slip op. at 7): The Indiana Board’s final determination is affirmed.

Key Analysis (slip op. at 6-7): Kooshtard has done nothing more than assert that the applicable neighborhood valuation form “recommends” a negative influence factor to account for its land’s size and shape. Kooshtard, however, was required to present a calculation which quantified (and would have possibly supported) the alleged loss in value to its property due to that condition. Consequently, the Indiana Board did not err when it held that Kooshtard did not make a prima facie case that it was entitled to a second negative influence factor of 50% to account for its land’s size and shape.
