I'm coming off a cut and I want to begin my lean bulk, but I don't know how to taper my calories back up. I'm currently down around 2000 calories a day and I want to go up to about 3000 or 3500 calories a day.

How often should I increase calories and by how many should I increase them?

Increaase them by about 500 a week until you start gaining weight. Make sure you're getting at least 0.5g/lb LBM in fats and 1g/lb LBM in protein per day.
