Sold house 2017

We are newlyweds, spouse sold her primary residence in 2017. Sale of the home fell under tax exemptions (i.e. primary, 2 of 5 blah blah), however, title company paid the state a 2% sales tax. The 2% sales tax was returned in a state refund in 2018 due to the sale of the house falling under the said exemptions. Should we omit the 1099-G provided by the state as income during 2018 as that money was tax exempt in 2017, and spouse did not itemize 2017 taxes?

You do not need to report this 1099-G as this was for a refund of sales tax unduly paid. Just keep the form in your tax records.
