Customer Question

Each year we have H&R Block do our taxes, but I don't think they have my best interest in mind. Where itemizing deductions comes into play is a concern for me, sometimes the cost of them performing the schedule costs more than what my benefit would be.
Is there any tax software that allows me to get a few hypothetical scenarios to understand if I should bother itemizing and if so, should I donate/invest more money before the end of year to perhaps get into a lower tax bracket?
