In the title compound, C16H13BrO3S, the 4-methylphenyl group makes a dihedral angle of 70.1 (1)° with the mean plane [average deviation = 0.012 (2) Å] of the benzofuran unit. In the crystal, molecules are linked by weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. There are also π–π interactions between the furan and benzene rings of adjacent benzofuran systems [centroid–centroid distances = 3.621 (2) and 3.665 (2) Å], along with halogen–halogen interactions [Br⋯Br separation = 3.674 (1) Å].
