In the dinuclear title complex, [Sn2(CH3)4(C7H3F2O2)4], the SnIV atom is chelated by two 3,5-difluoro­benzoate (dfb) anions and coordinated by two methyl groups while an O atom from the adjacent dfb anion bridges the Sb atom with a longer Sb—O bond distance of 2.793 (4) Å. The complex mol­ecule has 2 symmetry and the SnIV atom is in a distorted penta­gonal–bipyramidal coordination geometry. In the crystal, mol­ecules are connected by C—H⋯O and C—H⋯F hydrogen bonds
