How do I get turbotax to recognize my w-2 are from different companies even though they have the same EIN number so that I can get my excess social security witholding refunded?
If both W-2 have the same EIN, you can't get TurboTax to recognize that your W-2s are from different employers. Contact the payroll company to check if EIN numbers can be corrected. If not, you need to file Form 843 Claim for Refund and Request for Abatement.

Yep.......if it is a single payroll company that provided the W-2 for each employer...then you may be stuck mail-filing.
TTX stopped covering the ability to e-file that situation ~2 years ago.
