The formyl­meth­oxy­nitro­phenoxide ions in the polymeric title compound, [Sn(C7H7)3(C8H6NO5)]n, link adjacent triorganotin(IV) cations into linear chains lying close to (101) [Sn—O = 2.1227 (12) Å and Sn← O = 2.4936 (13) Å]. The SnIV atom is displaced out of the C3Sn girdle of the trans-C3SnO2 trigonal-bipyramidal polyhedron in the direction of the covalently-bonded O atom [Sn—O—C = 137.63 (11)°] by 0.247 (1) Å; the geometry is distorted towards an octa­hedron by a remote O atom of the meth­oxy subsituent [Sn⋯O = 3.019 (1) Å]
