Taping uneven joints

I am doing a big drywall job meaning an entire room, 12'x20'. In some spots for some
reason the sheetrock edges are not even, lined up with each other. I know about the recessed edges, that's not the problem. a few spots the drywall does not line up so how do I tape and mud that? Should I mud first to make it even then tape ot just tape the uneven joint?

Believe me the job was challenging with sloped ceilings. Was in no mood to go back and correct the reason why it was uneven

If you have a good size void or a beveled edge against a flat edge, it's usually best to prefill those areas first. Just be sure the mud is dry before you go to tape over it.

I'm not sure I'm up to speed with the scope of the problem yet, can you post some pictures?
