Thomas Paul Hart (29 June 1896 – 25 May 1971) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL) and Norwood in South Australia.

Originally with Norwood, Hart was a half forward flanker. He was wounded in France during World War 1 combat, at the age of 20, but survived. On return to the SAFL, Hart continued to perform well for Norwood and was the league's leading goal-kicker after kicking 50 goals in 1922, a premiership year.

Carlton lured him to their club in 1923 but he only spent a season with them before returning to South Australia. He kicked two goals in debut and a further two in all but one of his next six games. Hart then played at West Adelaide until his retirement.
