New Tax Court Judge Expected Tomorrow

The Senate is expected to officially appoint Patrick DeAlmeida tomorrow to be the newest judge of the Tax Court of New Jersey. Patrick DeAlmeida is currently an Assistant Attorney General in the New Jersey Department of Law & Safety, Office of Attorney General’s Appellate Practice Group. Much of his time in this position (and previously as a Deputy Attorney General) has been spent in cases involving New Jersey’s Corporate Income Taxes. It is likely that Patrick DeAlmeida will sit in what was the former Honorable Roger Kahn’s seat in Newark, who retired from the bench in 2005.

This appointment comes at a time of dire need for the Tax Court. Currently, the Tax Court has six judges: the minimum number of judges allowed by state law. Two of these judges (the Honorable Peter Pizzuto and the Honorable Harold Kuskin) must retire within the next year. Although the expected appointment of Patrick DeAlmeida is a step in the right direction by the New Jersey Senate, another judge must be appointed to the Tax Court in the very near future in order to ensure that there are at least six Tax Court judges who are up to speed, and fully trained, once the Honorable Peter Pizzuto and the Honorable Harold Kuskin retire during the next year.
