Bruce Millar Forrester (c. 1909 - January 30, 1995) was a judge of the United States Tax Court.

He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and graduated from Pembroke Country-Day School in 1928. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri, and then a law degree from the University of Missouri School of Law. Thereafter, he went into private practice in Kansas City and eventually became a partner in a law firm.

On April 24, 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower appointed Forrester to a seat on the United States Tax Court. He was confirmed by the United States Senate, and served actively until assuming senior status in 1978. He continued as a senior judge until 1984, when he retired. He had served on the bench for 27 years.

Forrester died in his home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, from dysplastic anemia, and was survived by his wife of 57 years, Anne Lee Broaddus Forrester.
