The title compound, C8H9N3S, contains two molecules in the asymmetric unit. One molecule is close to being planar (r.m.s. deviation from the mean plane = 0.06 Å for the non-H atoms), while the other exhibits a dihedral angle of 21.7 (1)° between the benzene ring and the mean plane of the thiosemicarbazone unit. Intermolecular N-HS hydrogen bonds link the molecules into layers parallel to the (010) plane.
