In the title compound, C12H13BrO2S, there are two symmetry-independent molecules, A and B, in the asymmetric unit. The crystal studied was an inversion twin with a 0.70 (2):0.30 (2) domain ratio. The methylsulfinyl group in molecule B is disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors fixed at 0.6 and 0.4. The crystal structure is stabilized by C-HO hydrogen bonds and intermolecular C-H interactions. In addition, the crystal structure exhibits C-Br interactions, with C-BrCg1 = 3.646 (8) Å where Cg1 is the centroid of the furan ring.
