1099b sales of stocks and bonds. 1e, 1g, 2, 3, 4 are blank amount was for maintenance. how do I show that in turbotax on line 1e and the sale category

If 1e is your cost basis, then you need to enter that information.  

Unless you know the cost basis, the amount is automatically zero.  You will have to determine the sale category (long-term or short-term) based on when the stock was purchased.

When it comes to the date acquired, your 1099-B can still be useful (even though it left this area blank). As long as each sale was listed as either short-term or long-term, you can type in the word "Various" in the box for date acquired.
