The title compound, C17H20N2O3, is a Schiff base, which is found as a zwitterion in the solid state. The geometry around the iminium N atom indicates sp2-hybridization. The zwitterion shows a strong intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen-bond inter­action between the iminium N atom and the phenolate O atom.
