Does "2.75%" mean 2.75% return + CPI inflation? Taxable of course.

Can't you see yourself in the nursing home saying, " Darn! Wish I'd spent more time at the office instead of wasting time with family and friends."

The 2.75% means real return. The CPI is basically tacked onto your principle so you are getting 2.75% + CPI. TIPS are generally held in non-taxed accounts because of the "phantom income" which sounds mysterious but you don't have to worry about it unless you hold TIPS in taxable accounts.
