You can make one dummy file with the tag @build-tag@ in your file. Then in
your ant you can copy that file to your property file with the filter set
option like,

  <copy todir="XYZ" file="PROPERTYFILE">
         <filterset>
            <filter token="build-tag" value="${now}" />
         </filterset>
      </copy>
