I would place at least some of it in a Total Market Index Fund. Low maintenance cost, no "churning". A portfolio of all "fixed" investments is going to get hammered by inflation; 20 years from now you will have preserved your capital, but not made anything with it. You might have $110K, but its buying power has eroded. Taxes shouldn't be you sole consideration.
