The title compound, [Sn(C(6)H(5))(3)(C(9)H(10)NS(2))], has two independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit and each features a tetra-hedrally coordinated Sn(IV) atom as the dithio-carbamate ligand coordinates in a monodentate fashion. As the non-coordinating thione S atom is proximate to the Sn atom [Sn⋯S(thione) = 3.1477 (6) and 2.9970 (5) Å for the independent mol-ecules], distortions from the ideal geometry are evident [the widest angle being 120.48 (5)°]. The most notable feature of the crystal packing is the formation of C-H⋯π inter-actions that lead to the formation of supra-molecular layers parallel to ([Formula: see text]2[Formula: see text]).
