What are typical oxidation states for tin?

Tin exhibits 2 oxidation states; $S n {\left(N {O}_{3}\right)}_{4}$ and $S n {\left(N {O}_{3}\right)}_{2}$ are conceivable.
Both $\text{stannous nitrate}$, $S n {\left(N {O}_{3}\right)}_{2}$, and $\text{stannic nitrate}$, $S n {\left(N {O}_{3}\right)}_{4}$, are known. I suppose the $S n \left(I I\right)$ compound would be a little easier to handle, but the oxidation number must be specified for clarity.
