The title compound, C16H13ClO3S, crystallized with two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. The 4-methylphenyl rings make dihedral angles of 75.15 (4)° and 72.18 (4)° with the planes of the benzofuran ring systems in the two molecules. In the crystal, molecules are linked by weak C-HO and C-H interactions, forming a three-dimensional network.
