SAO PAULO, July 30 (Reuters) - Banco Santander Brasil SA, the Brazilian subsidiary of Spain's Banco Santander SA, beat estimates for second-quarter net income on Thursday after booking a large tax rebate.

Net income was 3.881 billion reais ($1.17 billion) in the quarter, way above the 682 million reais estimate in a Reuters poll of ten analysts. Data on recurring net income at Santander Brasil was not immediately available on the bank's website.
