Help!! Front Suspension questions!!!

Im a beginner on bikes overall and wanted to ask some people that know.

I was wondering what is the best fork for 29er's for under 400$?

When upgrading a fork do you need spacers for it?

Will a tapered work on my bike? (link below)

Thanks!!!

You need a non-taper 1 1/8" fork. I've seen RS Reba 29 forks on ebay for $350-400.
