plaster / tape drywall?

I am in the early stages of a basement finishing project. The thing I hate doing more then anything is taping and plastering drywall. I know everyone is going to say get multiple quotes, but I was wondering if anyone had any idea on a normal cost to have this done? And when I do get quotes if there is anything I just make sure they do during the process?

Labor prices can vary a lot in different areas.

It is always best to check references! Not everyone does the same quality of work. Finishing drywall is pretty straight forward - mud and tape all the joints, mud all the screw/nails. Generally 3 coats of mud on everything and sand the final coat.
