    Cool charge someone

    Hello!

    Is it correct to use "charge" twice in this sentence?

    "I have to charge him extra-charges".


    Do we need to say "charge him for"?

    Thank you very much for your help.
    Will

    Thank you.

    Is "for" necessary in this case?:

    "I need to charge him for late penalties".

    Thanks a lot

    You're not charging for the late penalty. You're charging for being late.



    1. You charge late penalties.

    2. but, You charge penalties for being late.
