(2) Until July 1, 2020, the department shall issue a sales and use tax deferral certificate for state and local sales and use taxes due under chapters 82.08, 82.12, and 82.14 RCW, on each eligible investment project that is located in an eligible area, if the applicant establishes that at the time the project is operationally complete:
(a) The applicant will hire at least one qualified employment position for each $750,000 of investment for which a deferral is requested; and
(b) The positions will be filled by persons who at the time of hire are residents of the community empowerment zone.
