Sounds like you did the drywalling and corner bead and want it taped and mudded and sanded, which is at least a 2 pass job done right - commonly 3 on high-end finish job [especially for eggshell or gloss paint coatings and for water color/acrylic murals] and ceilings.

Depends a lot on local labor costs of course, and on finding a Drywall contractor who wants to finish off a job you half took out of his mouth (by not having him do it all), but probably about $150-200 range plus about $25-50 materials if you did a decent job and countersunk the fasteners correctly - more if he has to clean up mistakes. If texturing is included, probably more like $200-300 labor range.

Your cost could be higher if he has a higher job minimum cost - some contractors are imposing $200-400 minimums for small jobs now, and of course small jobs are low on the scheduling priority - basically filler jobs - so you might get stuck with a handyman - some do good drywall finishing, some make bare drywall look good by comparison.
