HOUSTON - Bank United of Texas reported net income of $14.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, down 73% from the $55.4 million earned in the same period a year ago.

The Houston-based thrift said the decline was due primarily to nonrecurring tax benefits derived from an accounting rule applied in 1994.
