In the title compound, C14H15NO3S, the geometry around the S atom of the SO2 group is distorted tetrahedral. The methoxy- and methyl-substituted aromatic rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 71.39 (9)°. Intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds form inversion dimers, which stabilize the crystal structure.
