'The Fouquet's tax'

Tax is on all today's front pages - as François Hollande announces a plan to tax millionaires 75%. It certainly divides the left from the right - depending on whether you think it's a step in the right direction, or class war.

Libération says François Hollande hopes to stake out his ideological territory - by picking a campaign theme that marks him out clearly on the left.

For Le Figaro, though, this is class war, even though business paper Les Echos says the bankers have brought this on themselves.

Le Parisien looks at who might be affected by this - from Liliane Bettencourt to football stars, and even France's golden boy, the actor Jean Dujardin.
