Concrete example which hit a couple of friends of mine ...

Expat Americans, didn't declare their income to the American 
authorities. After maybe 20 years, decided to go home. America taxes 
*all* American nationals on *all* their income, so they had to do back 
calculations on all the money they'd earnt in Britain. Okay, so the tax 
probably came to zero (British taxes are higher), but they still had to 
show the American authorities they didn't owe anything.
