My employer gave me a 1099 but I feel I should have been issued a W-2. I was told I should file a SS-8 form and then file with a 8919. Can I do that here?

No, TurboTax is not optimized to address this issue. See https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/independent-contractor-self-employed-o... 

Bottom line: You're probably right, but it could take months or years and many letters to IRS to resolve.
