Can I use my 2018 state refund as a tax break

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by tax break.  Your 2018 refund received in 2019 may actually be taxable income if you itemized on your 2018 return.  If you took the standard deduction on your 2018 return, which is most common, the refund will not be taxable income for 2019.
