behind cabinets


what is acceptable to finish drywall behind kitchen cabinets ?
i am figuring that a basic tape job is all that is needed.

As long as you have backs on the cabinets....tap, primer and paint is fine.

I never paint behind cabinets. Tape, one coat of mud over the tape. Scrape off the lumps and prime.

Any time I remove old cabinets to replace with new and no one primed and painted behind them it's a moldy stained mess.
It does not need to be pretty just sealed up in my option.
