Yes, enter "E" in the TurboTax 1099-B input screen for "Sales Category".

"E" is the applicable code for a long-term transaction,  noncovered. 

Noncovered means the financial institution was not required to report holding period or cost basis on the 1099-B. They might have done that, but they weren't required to.
