Do I have to tape?

Frankly it's the dust that is the worst part and constantly cleaning the clogged vacuum, plus I am slow.
And faster I can get this done, the less bit*hing I'll hear.

I have to do all the painting anyway and a professional sheetrock person would work 100x faster than I would. I will have all the strips screwed in and be ready for the sheetrock person.
The area is Northeast Florida, but certainly the national companies have national policies.
Shop vac plus dust deputy. No mess, no clogs, very nice.
