Tamara Ashford confirmed by the Senate as a Tax Court judge.

Tamara Ashford, who is currently acting assistant attorney general in the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, was confirmed as a Tax Court Judge by voice vote.

Ms. Ashford is currently Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ's Tax Division. At her Senate confirmation hearing, Ms. Ashford stated that "Through my experiences, which also include leadership positions held outside my professional work, I have come to understand what makes a good judge and amassed the temperament and skills to be an independent arbiter as a Tax Court Judge," Ashford said at the hearing. "If confirmed, I hope to continue to be guided by the values and principles instilled in me by my family and my past experiences - to work hard and to serve our nation's tax system by resolving tax controversies fairly, impartially and expeditiously."
