Pretty much any bank will open a CD account for an IRA. I don't understand what tax issues you're concerned about.

We are not eligible for a Roth or deductible contributions to a Traditional IRA. It does not make sense to make non-deductible contributions and convert to a Roth since we have Rollover IRAs and there would be substantial taxes due on the conversions.

I cannot see moving our Rollover IRAs from Vanguard to a bank, so I would have to buy "brokered CDs" which I don't really understand. I'm not one that likes to buy things I don't understand...

Given this, I don't know what my options are other than Bond Funds in our tax-deferred accounts (at Vanguard, plus 401k and 403b accounts) or CDs in our taxable accounts. If I am missing something, please let me know.
