Two were given prison sentences and two were handed suspended sentences.
Robert Ingram, of Southview Rise, Alton, was sentenced to 50 days for non-payment of council tax arrears totalling £2,558.43.
Mr Ingram had been given a suspended prison sentence at an earlier court hearing, giving him the opportunity to settle the debt in instalments of £40 per fortnight.
However, he had made no payments at all, leaving the magistrates with little option but to impose the sentence.
