There are two independent mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C7H5ClN4, in which the tetra­zole and benzene rings are twisted by dihedral angles of 12.9 (1) and 39.8 (1)°. In the crystal, the independent mol­ecules are connected into a tetra­mer by C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, generating an R44(12) graph-set motif.
