Assuming the 1099-G is for state income tax refunds, you enter the refunds of whomever of you itemized deductions and took a deduction for state income taxes paid in 2016.  If neither itemized, enter 0, if one of you did, enter that amount, if both of you did, sum them.

1099-G is for state income tax refund.  I itemized for 2016 tax year and my wife didn't.  Based on your answer since I did, I enter my state tax refund for 2016, and since she didn't itemized I don't include her state tax refund for 2017.
