Overlapping Tapping

When tapping end joints by tapered joints, or other areas where taping will overlap.

Do you overlap the tape or cut it so it doesn't over lap.

Overlapping Tapping

I have always ran tape from the butt joint into the factory joint, I do this first then tape the factory joints and leave the corners for last. Not saying it's the only way or the right way but it's the way I have done it for years.
