The title compound, C9H12N2O3, was synthesized by the reaction of ethyl 2-(4-meth­oxy­phen­oxy)acetate with hydrazine hydrate in ethanol. In the acetohydrazide group, the N—N bond is relatively short [1.413 (2) Å], suggesting some degree of electronic delocalization in the mol­ecule. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into sheets lying parallel to the ab plane by N—H⋯N and N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
