I paid for a short term rental in full. The renter now wants me pay 10% of the total to the Marin County Tax Collector, is that my responsibility?

The lease agreement should detail all monies you are obligated to pay.

It is not your responsibility to pay Landlord's tax. Property tax is due in a few days or he will have to start paying late fees.
It makes very little sense you should write two checks one for rent less the 10% and one check to Marin County Tax Collector! He may be trying to show less in rent for an income property? I have no idea but I wouldn't do it.
Have a short term rental agreement drawn up showing what your rent is in total and a receipt showing that you paid your rent in full for that duration. He can write the tax collector himself, he's a grown up isn't he?
Good luck!
